Legend has it that this pendant was commissioned by a spirited duchess named Cordelia who resided in Cornwall several centuries ago. The auburn-haired beauty fell victim to prearranged matrimony and endured loveless decades with a cruel, older man who provided for her every material need while neglecting her soul.

She mourned her loneliness and decided to end her life by plunging a knife into her heart. Cordelia sketched a simple heart with a droplet to signify her end, and entrusted the royal jeweler to engrave the final words "love me" upon the back with intent to wear the necklace at the time of her demise. Upon her departure with the coveted necklace, the jewelsmith was so saddened by her story that he followed her to the riverbank where he spared her and granted her final wish.

Though the replica is not engraved, the beveled crystal heart and drop are souvenirs of a story that endures as long as women long to be loved...

Handcrafted with Austrian crystals. Lead-free chain. 1.25 x .5" pendant. VTC Exclusive!

Disappointing...
I had wanted this necklace for a long time. When I first saw it in a catalog I thought it was very pretty and I liked the story that went with it. When I saw it finally go on sale/clearance I jumped at the opportunity to purchase it at a lower price and before it was gone. When I received it and saw it in person I was glad that I had not paid full price for it. I was expecting it to be a single heart-shaped stone set in marcasite for the main pendant It is not. It''s two tear-drop shaped stones set together badly surrounded by small round stones. And it''s not marcasite but a dark silver plated metal that looks like it''s a copy of a copy. I also received my pendant on a different style chain then the one pictured and it also looks to be plated with the same low quality plating as the pendant. I really liked the idea of this necklace but the quality just isn''t there. It would be fine for playing dress-up or halloween but just don''t expect a fine-quality item.
