Tell your Valentine "I Love You" with a heart box

This Valentine’s Day give that special person in your life a beautiful symbol of your love – a traditional silver plate heart box crafted by Lenox Kirk Stieff especially for Colonial Williamsburg. Long revered as the ultimate engagement or wedding gift, this lovely keepsake comes in a gleaming silver finish with a brass heart design. Originally designed as a tobacco box, the heart box is available in two sizes and can be used as a decorative accessory or to conceal precious collectibles. The heart boxes retail for $30 and $50, respectively.

Colonial Williamsburg’s popular line of silver plate heart products also includes an oblong jewelry box lined with velvet, a molded picture frame and a delicate sterling silver “C” band bracelet bearing the traditional gold heart. For a truly personal touch, the brass heart on the boxes and frame can be engraved with the traditional 18th-century monogram while the bracelet can be engraved with a single initial.

These products can be found at Craft House at Merchants Square, through the WILLIAMSBURG Catalog by calling toll-free (800) 446-9240 or by visiting online at
