'XO' Beaded Necklace | Sterling Silver
As the union of two people became more about true love (and less about external factors such as family and status) the love letter was born. Love letters became important ways to show love and affection. And in the spirit of romance, a new tradition was born. People began to sign and sealed their letters with an X. It eventually came to mean they were sealing it with a kiss, perhaps even physically kissing the scroll or paper once sealed. The 'O' came later and represents encircling a loved one in your arms. XO
