What is the meaning of a key pendant?
A key is a symbol that can symbolize many things depending on who is giving away the key. There are different meanings attached to a key pendant. I realized that it can be a symbol that someone has reached a certain age in life, for example, the 21st key can be given to someone who has turned 21. It may also symbolize unlocking someone’s heart and of course such a key pendant will not have any numeric value attached to it. Boys can impress their loved ones by buying a chain with a nice key pendant.
