Playing For Keeps
Regardless of your Facebook status- single, married, it's complicated- to stroll along Paris' Pont Des Arts Bridge is to believe in everlasting love. Along the bridge's railings: thousands of personalized padlocks secured by couples who, in tossing the keys into the Seine River, pledged eternal love. Such love locks can be found everywhere from Florence's Ponte Vecchio to the Brooklyn Bridge. With it's Lockit Collection of fine jewelry (the precious metal locks actually open and close), Louis Vuitton makes the public ritual personal. Because each piece is an heirloom, once you've committed, it's till death do you part.
