The EX VOTO Heart encapsulates the powerful memory of the strength of faith, designed for those who may have lost this precious feeling. Since ancient times, the practice of creating an “ex voto” was widespread after receiving a grace. The tradition involved commissioning the best craftsman in the city to create an object intended to be offered to a Saint as a sign of gratitude.
The “ex voto” was not just a simple artifact but had to stand out for its aesthetic beauty, representing a public or private gesture towards a Catholic Saint. This gift, offered after the Saint had been prayed to or invoked, symbolized the divine intercession that had saved the faithful from certain death.
With deep religious meaning, the ex voto is a genuine prayer of veneration, a tangible way to express gratitude to God, the Madonna, or a Saint. Our EX VOTO Heart ring embodies this sentiment, offering you the opportunity to wear and share your faith with a symbol loaded with spiritual significance.
