Original Anatomical Heart Locket

The solid silver anatomically correct human heart locket is a sculptural scientific illustration, opening to reveal a meticulously detailed interior. The handcrafted heart locket is held shut by the trunk of the aorta. It hangs on a 1.3mm wheat chain, 28" length, threaded through the superior vena cava and left pulmonary vein, which causes the heart to hang slightly anterioinferiorly. Grip the right pulmonary vein and artery across from the hinge to open and close the locket with a crisp snap.

Make note at checkout for chain lengths other than 28". 

This original anatomical heart locket is handmade and carefully, repeatedly tested and polished by the artist before shipment to you. A small silver tag on the end of the chain bares the makers marks PS 925. You will receive the locket with a yellow polishing cloth for the care of your silver. Over the life of this heirloom piece, the artist offers complimentary buffing and snap-tightening to keep your heart locket in new condition for many years of ware.
Dimensions of the locket: 1.5"x .75"x .5" (metric: 3.25cmx 1.7cmx .90cm)
