This sterling silver heart-shaped locket is slightly domed, giving it a substantial, puffed appearance. The front of the pendant has a bright finish with a lightly etched paw-print, while the smooth back has a matte finish—perfect for adding a customized engraved detail. This locket holds two photos, and includes protective plastic overlays for each. The interior bezel and snap closure mechanism are made of steel for strength and durability. A smooth tapered bail is fixed to the pendant—simply slide it onto a cord or chain to complete the piece.
• This locket features a snap-in ring and a protective clear plastic disc to hold each photo in place. To insert your photo, use a small watchmaker's screwdriver under the ring at the hinge side to lever the ring out of the locket. Remove the plastic protector and paper sheet from the compartment. Use the plastic cover or paper as a pattern to trim your photo to fit. Set the photo into the locket, cover it with the plastic protector and carefully snap the retainer ring back into place.
• IMPORTANT: Sterling silver is an alloy containing metals that react with chemicals found in air and produce tarnish; high moisture levels, exposure to sunlight and contaminants such as salt water increase this reaction. Take steps to protect your sterling findings by keeping them in airtight packages, use tarnish-resistant products (such as tarnish tabs or strips) that absorb harmful chemicals, and store sterling findings in a cool, dry place. Most tarnish is easily removed by polishing with a mild abrasive or soaking in an anti-tarnish solution.
