Absolutely breathtaking! This stunning silver locket is perfect in every detail. The front of the locket showcases the subtle beauty of an amethyst gemstone, set off to perfection by the surrounding star and crescent moons, and below that, a Celtic knotwork heart. On the reverse, the heart theme is repeated with extraordinary artistry. You'll find new details to love about this piece every time you wear it! The locket opens to reveal a space for a photo or other tiny treasure.
The Amethyst Heart Pentacle Locket is made of sterling silver. It measures just over 1 1/4" tall, including the bail. The interior of the locket is approximately 3/4" in diameter. The pendant comes with an 18" sterling chain.

How securely will this stay closed? In all the years we have offered this locket, I have never, ever seen one fall open just by chance. That being said, if you are planning on using this pendant to hold something precious, like ashes, or a lock of hair, it is probably best to seal it shut with a dab of glue. You might also want to replace the chain with one that is more substantial, just in case.
Who designed this pendant? The design for this pendant is the creative work of the artisan Paul Borda. Paul works in various mediums, but typically, his creations start as wood carvings. This is a process that can take hundreds of hours, as he works to draw forth his vision from the block of wood. Once that is complete, he works with skilled jewelers who are able to translate his work into sterling silver.
