This extremely detailed 18k yellow gold anatomical heart locket features a 1.5"x .75"x .5" anatomically correct human heart which opens to reveal a meticulously detailed interior. The piece is very valuable, as it weighs over an OUNCE in 18ky gold! Its a gorgeous, warm piece with an incredible deep gold luster. There are 7 diamonds set in the valves and 2 diamonds set in the right atrioventricular valve on the interior. The diamonds are colorless with excellent polish and scintillation and range in size from 1.3mm-1.5mm. The necklace is pleasantly heavy (27.6 dwt, over 1.3 troy ounces total weight) in cast and fabricated 18k yellow gold with a hand fabricated hinge. The locket is held shut by the trunk of the aorta, which I have fabricated to act as a snap. The chain is an 18ky gold 24" wheat chain which attaches to the locket through the superior vena cava and left pulmonary vein, causing the heart to hang slightly anterioinferiorly. I have textured the wall of the right ventricle to achieve a further degree of anatomical correctness. If you buy this piece, you will have a true original! It is an artisan piece which I have made entirely by hand in Chicago, start to finish. I do not plan on reproducing the gold version and can guarantee that it will be a limited edition. It is stamped 18k on the inside.

Any questions or special requests, please don't hesitate to send a conversation. This piece would also look incredible in 14k yellow or rose gold. Please inquire.
Thanks for your interest! See all of my work at www.peggyskemp.com.
