And who gave it to you? I know many think these necklaces are played, but I still notice a ton of them whenever I'm walking around! I've actually had three variations in my life: 1. the small open heart that my father gave to me when I was 6 years old (still have it). 2. the same small open heart that my ex-boyfriend gave me when I turned 21, not knowing I already had the same necklace from my dad... heehee. I actually wore the two together on one chain for a long time, until we broke up and I gave the one he had given me back to him. Interestingly, the design was subtly different from the one I got in 1986 -- same heart, same size, but ever so slightly tweaked. 3. From my husband on our first Valentine's Day, I got the 5 Open Heart necklace... he said he almost got the single small open heart as well, so it's a good thing he didn't LOL! I need to break out the 5 hearts and wear it sometime soon... I didn't take it off for months after he gave it to me but it's since been somewhat neglected in favor of more recent pieces he's given me. Do you have an open heart necklace? What's the story?
