Since ancient times, keys have been symbols with an almost endless number of meanings. For example, they been used as a symbol of learning or knowledge, since they open locked doors into unknown places.
They can stand for power, because they control coming and going via locking and unlocking doors. For the same reason, they can also represent freedom.
Sometimes keys are used in a romantic way, as in “key to my heart” which is an apt interpretation of this necklace since it's paired in a very decorative way with an endless knot to symbolize “endless love”.
And, just as fitting, from a Christian point of view, this key might be symbolic of the power to enter the eternal kingdom of Heaven, just as Saint Peter is so often depicted as the keeper of its keys.
