|A cordiform brooch|
(by Mary Anne Enriquez)
Adjective. Early 19th century.
[from Latin cor(d) heart + -FORM.]
If you're looking for a synonym for 'heart-shaped', consider cordiform which, together with its cognate cordate, is also a formal zoological and botanical term, as in 'a cordiform leaf'. I'm not quite sure why I like this word so much, but it's ... well ... captured my heart.
