Keys have always been endowed with a certain sort of magic.
It’s believed they have the power to reveal things that were unknown or obscured before.
In Far East cultures, keys are regarded as a "Good Luck" presents and a bearer of a good fortune ahead.
It was believed that wearing a Key as a Pendant will open physical, intellectual, or spiritual barriers and give access, or attract riches of all nature.
In Christian culture the Skeleton Key is sometimes a symbol of the Key to Heaven
Folktales tell of a universal “Skeleton Key”, that will successfully unlock anything you wish for.
Thus such a key pendant is given to open new horizons and new uncharted adventures for one who wears it.
In modern days, we have adopted the Key Pendant as a symbol of entrusting someone with the access to one's "Heart of Hearts".
The "Key to a Heart" is given in the same fashion as the “Key to a City” has been given for ages.
The practice of presenting a "Key to the City" to an individual can be traced back the Middle Ages
It was a symbol of the City's intention that the recipient was free to come and go at will.
Today it is considered a symbolic gesture, bestowed upon distinguished persons and honored guests for achievements of the highest importance.
Giving someone the "key to Your Heart" will be a symbol of expressing a special trust and commitment.
In present days, when in a romantic relationship, two will exchange keys from their homes as an act,
that signifies the moment when a relationship has been taken to the next level and the foundation of a life together has been laid.
The rich symbolism bestowed upon Key pendants is drawn from many cultures and makes them a versatile present for just about any age and any occasion.
Key pendants can be equally appropriate presents for both romantic and none romantic occasions, celebrating family milestones or personal achievements.
