Sweetheart jewelry was a token of affection from a service member originally given to their sweetheart. This tradition started in WWI, but became increasingly more popular during World War II, as cloth was rationed as part of the war effort. As a result,  clothing was unadorned and simple. Wearing sweetheart jewelry not only served as a connection to a loved one who was fighting overseas, but gave the wearer a sense of style. Sweetheart jewelry expanded to all relations, including wife, girlfriend, mothers and sisters.
