I rarely am without it. My grandchildren love to see me wear it because it contains pictures of them. I hope she makes a lot of them. I will buy them for friends.
My wife loved it. It is elagantly made but also has a rugged charm due to the material. It's about the size of a half dollar.
From the moment I took this out of its soft pouch, I was breathtaken. The chain is long and accurately portrayed in the picture. The most surprising part was the heft of the necklace. It's not too heavy, but a perfectly weighted reminder that you're wearing a quality piece of jewelry. I was also surprised to find that this is one continuous chain that lacks a clasp, so it can't be doubled for a shorter look. My only disappointment is that, in the picture, the words written on the back were contrasted in a darker color against the gold, making the words easy to read. The words on mine have no contrast, making a few of them seem faint. I'm going that, by being brass, a patina will darken the letters over time. My only other comment is about the chain. The chain it comes with is lovely. But it would be nice to have a clasp and the flexibility to change the length. Sometimes I want it shorter so people can see it!
Beautiful necklace, had to remove 1 star because the first 2 ordered did not clasp shut. The 3rd was perfect although the locket does occasionally open due to the delicacy of the necklace but i think that it the appeal. Love it!
