The solid silver anatomical human heart locket is entirely handcrafted in recycled nickel-free 925 silver. It opens to reveal a meticulously detailed anatomically correct interior. The heart locket is held shut by the trunk of the aorta and 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.
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 of authenticity PS 925. You will receive the locket with a yellow polishing cloth for the care of your silver. Peggy 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)
Make note at checkout for chain lengths other than 28".
