So, what's the symbolism of a double heart necklace? The double heart or intertwined hearts symbolise romantic love in complete unity.

What do Intertwined Hearts Mean?
Intertwined hearts often denotes affection and romantic joining of people together as a symbol of togetherness and complete unity. Double heart jewellery and heart lockets are top choices for engagement, anniversary and Valentine's Day gifts between couples.
However, the meaning of intertwined hearts exists outside the romantic sense of the symbol. People wear double heart jewellery to also symbolise unity and connectedness to other loved ones in their lives.
A mother of two children might wear a necklace with more than one heart to represent the affection toward each child.
A daughter might wear multiple intertwined hearts symbolising the love for both parents.
Best friends might share matching double heart pendants to represent their continued friendship, also known as friends forever. Either way, the double heart symbol reflects the idea of complete unity between people forever.
Design choices often feature one larger heart inside a smaller heart to act as a focal point. One heart intertwined has the same meaning as joined circles and the infinity symbol, also prevalent in jewellery design.
