Samantha's Heart NecklaceSamantha Stephen's Necklace - Frequently worn piece of jewelry used by housewife/witch Samantha Stephens (Elizabeth Montgomery) on the fantasy series BEWITCHED/ABC/1964-72. The sparkling trademark puffed pave diamond heart pendant necklace (a 7/8 inch item made of white gold or platinum) was given to Montgomery about 1963 by her then husband William Asher, the producer and director of the show.

The necklace was incorporated into her character's wardrobe when the show began and continued to be worn throughout the series (visible from Episode #2 through #101).

The necklace was lost for a time and could not be seen from episodes #102 - #105 until the show's prop department had two rhinestone replicas created as replacements.

Eventually, the heart necklace was seen less and less (last seen on episode #199) because of changing fashions which covered up Sam's neck and chest area or possibly it was because Montgomery and her husband Asher were having marriage difficulties which inevitably ended in divorce.

Samantha later wore an "S" charm on a gold chain. The Samantha doll made for the Madame Alexander Collection makes a point of including a small heart necklace with each of their Samantha Stephens collectibles.



TRIVIA NOTE: On episode "Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered" on the occult drama BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, Xander Harris gives a silver heart necklace to Cordelia at the Valentine's Day dance held at the Bronze. Unfortunately, Cordelia dumps him right after getting the necklace. Bitter, Xander blackmails a witch named Amy to cast a love spell on Cordelia. But first Amy needs a personal object from Cordy, so Xander retrieves the necklace and uses it as a talisman to create the spell.

Amy: Diana... goddess of love and the hunt... I pray to thee. Let my cries bind the heart of Xander's beloved. (lowers the necklace into the brew) May she neither rest nor sleep (the brew sparks) until she submits to his will only.

Unfortunately, the spell misfires and makes "all" the women in Sunnydale "except" Cordelia attracted to Xander. Before the spell is finally broken by Giles, a mob of lovesick women in search of Xander (Willow and Buffy, among them), ransack the town and almost kill Cordelia because she spurned Xander's affections. ("I'd rather see you dead than with that bitch!", sobs an axe-wielding Willow).
