This is a beautiful large locket honoring the Virgin Mary, and used as a reliquary for keepsakes, rosaries, trinkets, mementos, or thank you's for an answered prayer.
The sacred heart is made of metal that has an antiqued patina. This is a replica of a piece typical of the late 1800's to early 1900's. The front of the heart is stamped Monogram of Mary.
From the top of the flame to the base of the heart, it measures 3 1/2 inches. The actual heart that opens to a locket is about 2 inches tall and 2 inches wide. Total depth is almost an inch.
A hook is on the back for hanging. Hang it from a Christmas tree limb, use as a wall hanging, or hang from or place inside the cage of your Santos. You can also attach it to a bridal bouquet or as a bold piece of jewelry. Or - just use for a safe keeping place for mementos of your miracles!
Choose dark brass, light brass, silver, or gold finish.
Photo 5 shows several random examples of how the silver locket's finish/antiquing process can vary from piece to piece. Same goes for the brass lockets and the gold ones. When purchasing a particular finish, you will receive a random one in that finish of our choice.
We also carry this in a larger 6 inch copper finish ex-voto.
