An open heart is a universal symbol of giving and receiving love. This precious keepsake companion perfectly compliments the elegant jewelry designed by Emmy Award-winning actress Jane Seymour for her debut line exclusive to Kay Jewelers. Open Hearts reflects life's joys, heartaches, and inspirations and symbolizes that only when you can love yourself and keep your heart open are you able to give and receive love. This theme is celebrated through a collection of poems, essays, quotes, and Jane Seymour's equally inspirational “Healing Hearts” paintings. The coalescence of words and art speak to every kind of love in people's lives. They prove that it's a force that flows unconditionally, because if your heart is open, it can never stay broken.
