No image can quite do justice to the delicate, ethereal nature of this precious little heart necklace. We work with beautiful jewelry every day, but this is surely the finest chain we have come across; it floats around your neck, as weightless as a tattoo and as delicate as a tiny beam of light. From this remarkable 16" 18 karat gold chain hangs a tiny 18 karat gold heart with an even tinier white diamond in its center. The heart pendant measures 3/16" in diameter. This is a piece you can comfortably wear for the rest of your life, as a reminder to always be light of heart.

Aili Jewelry is handmade in Brooklyn by artist Monica Ruzansky. "Aili" is a Gaelic word meaning "light," which is fitting, as Ruzansky also makes a living as a professional photographer, exploring the fascinating properties of light and shadow with her lens. With her jewelry line, the artist has found another way to perceive and manipulate light; her ethereal, barely-there 18 karat gold creations glimmer and sparkle, subtly reacting to and reflecting off the wearer. All of the metals in the Aili line are recycled and sourced from ethically responsible companies.

When ordering our jewelry, please take the listed measurements into account, as pieces can appear larger in the images.
