Brass Heart Necklace at Meat Market Vintage

Each week Gem features one standout piece from a local shop. Whether it's a jacket, necklace, or handbag, it's on our have-to-have list.

What: After seeing heart-shaped buttons and appliqués in Anna Sui's Spring 2012 line and the lovable slew of Cupid-worthy accessories from Marc by Marc Jacobs, Miu Miu, and Lanvin, we couldn't help but be drawn to this vintage brass necklace with an oversize heart charm.

Where: Meat Market Vintage (see details about the shop's grand opening party Saturday, March 3, here)

Cost: $18
