In the asymmetric “Witch’s Heart”, the heart points to one side. This romantic symbol means “you enchanted me”, “you cast a spell on me” or maybe even “I put a spell on you”.
Ivy is a climbing and creeping plant that covers and binds trees, buildings, actually everything within its reach. Because of this binding aspect of the plant, it has been a perfect symbol of faith and affection since ancient times.
The diamond in the middle is a symbol of eternal love and devotion. “Diamonds are forever” avant la lettre.
