Heart of the Ocean

Undoubtedly the most famous necklace in the world is the Heart of the Ocean or Cœur de la Mer. Who doesn’t know it, probably lived on a desert island for the past 20 years. It is the name of a fictional blue diamond which plays an important role in the movie Titanic from 1997. In the story, Caledon Hockley (Billy Zane), the rich son of a steel tycoon from Pittsburgh, gave the diamond - originally worn by Louis XVI and cut into a heart after the French Revolution - to his fiancée Rose DeWitt Bukater (Kate Winslet). The story of the Heart of the Ocean is based on the story of the Hope Diamond or Le Blue de France, worn by Louis XIV.

The film was responible for an unseen Heart of the Ocean-hype. Every woman wanted such a necklace, even brides wore it on the most beautiful day of their lives. It was the symbol of pure love. There are a lot of replicas on the market nowadays. The craziness may be over, this type of necklace remains the most popular among women. We also offer necklaces with beautiful diamond pendants, whether or not in the shape of a heart with diamonds and sapphire.
