Oh, how I love beautiful rhinestone jewelry. My love and appreciation for rhinestone jewelry began very early in life. As a child I had, I would say, a natural healthy curiosity about all things I just couldn’t make sense out of. One of these things was the shower in my parent’s bathroom.

I first became interested in Sarah Coventry jewelry near the beginning of my internet sales career. I found a few pieces at a garage sale and they were very pretty and very inexpensive, so I purchased them. When I arrived home at the end of my buying day, I began trying to research Sarah Coventry.

Throughout the ages, some symbols keep recurring and also keep their original intended meaning. One of those is the heart.
In traditional art and folklore, the heart symbol seems to have always been drawn as a stylized shape. The fact that it is called a heart is somewhat controversial, since it only vaguely resembles the human heart.
