Since 2008, lovers in Paris have been taking romantic strolls across a bridge known as the Pont des Arts, which connects the Institut de France to the central square of the Louvre. Along the way, they are stopping to attach to the railings a padlock inscribed with their names, and then throw the key into the River Seine. The “love lock” gesture represents a commitment that cannot be broken, and a permanent physical reminder of their time together in Paris.
French authorities are not impressed, because the combined weight of the locks is now causing structural problems for the famous bridge. But we admire the romance of the gesture, so we created the Love Lock Collection. To guarantee perfection we went to the land of romance– Italy. Each piece is meticulously handmade from the intricate padlock charms to the classic Byzantine metalwork.
Crafted of sterling silver covered in lustrous Italian gold, a piece or two from this collection is a beautiful representation of your enduring love and reminder of your commitment to each other. And while a trip to Paris may run you a few thousand dollars, the Love Lock Collection is priced to capture romance without letting too much of your money escape.
