Where does come from?
Unicode approved revolving hearts emoji 💞 in 2010 as part of Unicode 6.0. It was released as part of a love fest: heart with arrow 💘, beating heart 💓, broken heart 💔, two hearts 💕, sparkling heart 💖, heart with ribbon 💝, heart decoration 💟, and growing heart 💗.
Most platforms depict a smaller red or pink heart in the upper right next to a larger one in the lower left, with similarly colored ribbons representing that they are rotating, as shown in the screenshot from Emojipedia below.
Older versions actually animated a small heart moving in a circle around a larger one, which was scrapped with the adoption non-animated emoji.
Who uses ?
Revolving hearts emoji 💞 is used to reflect overwhelming, dizzying feelings of love, joy, or affection.

It’s also used to show mutual love or affection between two people, as if the two hearts are moving around the love between the two people.

Sometimes revolving hearts emoji 💞 can suggest “I’m feeling so much love from this group,” or “I’m surrounded by love and support.”

And because it does depict two small, pink hearts, the emoji often shows up next to photos of pink things like makeup, clothes, or flowers to reflect and accent the color … while also showing appreciation for the object.
