About the Piece
Heart locket measuring 1.5"x .75"x .5" when closed.
Made of recycled sterling silver, this anatomical heart locket is held shut by the trunk of the aorta, which acts as a secure snap. The heart opens by pulling on the right pulmonary vein to reveal a meticulously detailed interior.
The 18” chain attaches to the pendant by threading through the superior vena cava and left pulmonary vein, causing the heart to hang slightly anterioinferiorly, as it does within the human body.
