Vintage Antique Brass Heart Charms

Brass Hearts Add a Touch of Vintage to Any Jewelry

I love to add a touch of brass to jewelry, and vintage brass is the best, because vintage brass has a beautiful patina on the surface due to age. The patina that brass gets can change from climate to climate, dependent on the humidity and minerals in the air.

For romantic jewelry, vintage brass hearts are a nice touch to add because of their unique nature, and the romantic connotation of the heart. Brass is quite inexpensive, especially compared to silver, gold, and platinum, so it makes a nice gift at a reasonable price.

Mixing metals in a jewelry piece is also a good way to keep the cost lower, so adding brass hearts to a mostly silver necklace will keep the price down while adding style and interest to the piece.

Vintage Brass Hearts Come in Several Styles

Puffy hearts are hollow in the center, so they are lightweight, and may be flat on the surface or might have a molded or engraved surface.

It is also possible to find filigree brass puffy heart charms which are very beautiful to add to a jewelry design. Puffy hearts look great by themselves on a simple chain which would make a great gift for a teen or a younger child.

Brass Heart Locket Charms

My favorite brass heart charm is the heart locket charm.  I think that just about everyone I know had a heart locket of some sort as a child, and lockets are still quite popular to add to jewelry or by themselves.

It is the meaning behind a locket that makes it so special as a gift.  You can add something of yourself inside the heart or your recipient can put something inside from you.

Brass heart lockets are very readily available in single quantities or lots.  They come in different sizes, but most range in the 1/2 inch to 1 inch diameter size.

Heart Charms are Not Just for Charm Bracelets

We most often think of heart charms as belonging to a charm bracelet, however that does not have to be the case.  Heart charms make beautiful necklaces, and earrings as well.

To make earrings, all you need is a jump ring and an ear wire to add to the heart charm.  For a necklace, a jump ring and a chain.  In addition, charm necklaces are quite popular right now, so you could assemble a necklace with several different vintage brass heart charms on a chain for a unique vintage look.

Open or Closed Heart Charms

Besides the symbolism of an open heart, there are some very interesting open heart charms which are essentially the outline of a heart instead of a solid heart.  A very cool look would be to combine the solid and open hearts in one jewelry piece, necklace or bracelet.

In this situation, I don't think that a closed heart would indicated any type of insult or bad connotation, just a style of charm.
