We are simply spellbound by this Georgian Paste witches heart brooch! Inlaid with glittering paste gems, this piece is truly from another period in time.
Witches heart brooches as sub-genre of jewellery date back to the 15th century where they were created to ward off evil spirits. By the 18th century, the brooch had taken on more romantic magical connotations. In the Georgian period, if you were given a witches heart brooch by your partner or in a courtship it would signify that they were bewitched by your love.
