The Original Anatomical Heart locket is a sculptural scientific illustration that invites exploration. The anatomically correct heart is pleasantly solid in cast and fabricated white bronze, a simple alloy of base metals containing no absolutely no heavy metals. The locket is held shut by the trunk of the aorta, which acts as a secure snap, and opens to reveal a meticulously detailed interior. It hangs on an 18" white bronze foxtail chain, threading through the superior vena cava and left pulmonary vein. The closure is a sterling silver swivel clasp. The heart hangs slightly anterio-inferiorly as in the human body. It is a conversation piece which delights the anatomically-inclined wearer.

Each piece is entirely hand made with care. The hinge and snap are hand fabricated in sterling silver and each locket is carefully tested and hand polished before shipment to you. There is a small silver tag on the end of the chain with the makers mark PS. Although our jewelry quality white bronze alloy contains absolutely no heavy metals, it is not the appropriate metal choice for those with an allergy to nickel. Those with metal allergies should consider instead opting for the solid silver version. Your locket will come with a small yellow polishing cloth so that you can keep it brightly polished for years of wear.
