A Work of Heart

No one gets hurt when you play with this heart--a beautiful, sculptural paperweight that's perfect for a desk or side table. The two halves of the heart are made from 14 karat gold and chrome-plated steel, and they twist on a hidden pivot into any number of visual variations, giving you something new to love each time you see it. Originally designed by Francois Dallegret in 1974. Made in China.

        These hearts were purchased as 'going away' gifts for our cardiology fellows. They were perfect! Everyone loved them. I had them engraved and it came out very well.
