Spiral Heart - a Symbol of Eternal Love

We all know the most popular symbol for LOVE is the heart.
It is colored red to show the blood that runs through it and symbolizes passion and strong emotion.

The history of the shape is what I find particulariy  interesting. Although it is a somewhat stylized representation of the actual human heart organ, it's origin is said to be a bit more unique than that explanation.

It has been noted that ancient peoples used the seed of the silphium plant as and herbal contraceptive.  (. ) The shape of the seed resembles and upside down heart. It can be viewed at

The spiral has been noted as a symbol of bringing order to chaos, eternity and brining order out of chaos.

So, when the spiral and heart are combined, the image now becomes a symbol for eternal love.

Valentine's Day is right around the corner! Whether you want to give your significant other, friend or yourself the gift of eternal love, you can find beautiful handmade metal spiral hearts on our Etsy site at

Wishing you much love in your life!
