Yes, all the halves of the necklace that we've seen being handled by
people could belong to the same single heart.  But a/the heart
necklace was also seen a couple of times in flashbacks characters had.
One by Hurly, when he was shown a half and asked about it by the FBI
agent, and another by I'm not sure who.  It went by fast, but my
impression was that these flashbacks were different enough so that
they may have involved two similar, but not identical, necklaces.
Someone might want to review their videotapes of the show and check if
I'm right.  There's also something written on the hearts -- maybe it
can be read from a video too.
