Twenty-five years ago, jewelry designer Jean Schnaak (who also works as a full-time nurse) created a heart pin out of an earring to give to her husband as a Valentine's Day gift. As a pilot, he was on the road a lot and she wanted to give him something sentimental yet private. The pin was meant to be worn on the inside of his jacket over his heart. After encouragement from her colleagues, Schnaak created The Loving Heart Collection by Jean Schnaak, which included the signature Loving Heart Pin.
Since then the collection has grown to include solid pocket hearts, necklaces, earrings and more. Each comes packaged with a verse card to offer specific expressions of love. The verses, written by Schnaak, are available in nine languages, including limited selections of Chinese, Japanese and Hawaiian. Or you can customize your own verse.
The popular Pocket Hearts (about the weight and size of three stacked nickels) and pins make handsome gifts for a partner (or dad or grandfather) offering a tangible reminder of your love throughout the day as your special someone carries it with them. The solid sterling silver pocket hearts are $80 (10-karat gold, $1000); the 1/2-inch-by-1/2-inch pins are available in sterling silver ($60), or 14-karat gold ($230); ($360 with diamond solitaire).
While Schnaak is based in Honolulu, her business is online only. Orders must be placed by Feb. 10 to receive them by Valentine's Day. View the entire collection at lovingheartcollection.com. --- E. Clarke Reilly
