What are some obscure traditions or gestures that people used to express their love for one another in the 1920s-1950ish that are no longer really practiced?

What are some sweet, yet obscure gestures and expressions of love that people in the past used to do for one another when they were in relationships or dating?
Looking for things that are no longer typically done. Think: wearing your boyfriends school ring on a necklace or wearing his varsity jacket...only even more random than that.
I feel like the 1920s, especially, had a lot of little quirky romance related traditions for people to show that they were in love with each other or that they "belonged" to each other. I know I've read articles on this but I'm totally blanking this morning and can't think of any.
I tried google but I keep getting wedding ideas. I figure the smart people of ask mefi will be able to help.
p.s. I'm looking for inspiration for a jewelry craft project. Ideas don't have to be jewelry based, though. Just looking for concepts.
Thanks in advance!
