Where does the expression “key to your heart” even come from?
According to Lisa Hix in her wonderful article on skeleton keys, which can be read here http://www.collectorsweekly.com/articles/unlocking-the-riddle-of-skeleton-key-necklaces/:
“Locks and keys can also be used to protect one’s most valued belongings or to secure the gates of a walled city, so having a key is both a symbol of trust and conquest. Back in the day, keys were used as a means to flaunt your wealth, as they indicated you had something worth stealing.”
