There is a back story to almost everything sold by Hermes.
The design of this pendant draws on brand history. To wit: Passionate about metal clasps and mechanisms, Robert Dumas, head of Hermès in 1951, designed a belt whose metal details were embellished with openwork hearts. Taking inspiration from this classic model, the As de Coeur line showcases the fine craftsmanship of leather and precious metals by introducing metallic plates adorned with a heart. Casual, chic and feminine, this signature piece is also available in our belt collection. Pendant in Swift calfskin with gold plated hardware. This elegant heart cut out in a metallic plaque, delicately pearled over the leather, highlights our silversmith and leather goods expertise.”
