These two charming flaming heart lockets open up to hold your tiny trinkets. Golden metal reproductions of tiny antique reliquaries, the large locket has the letters N D on it, for Notre Dame - meaning 'Our Lady'. The small locket has the "M" under the cross, from the back of The Miraculous Medal.
From top of flame to bottom of the heart, the small one measures 1.75" and the large locket measures 2.25".
String it on a chain, rosary, ribbon or cord and use as a locket on a Santos doll, or as an ornament or keepsake.
Various examples of the lockets can be seen in our photos. These are hand made, hand finished lockets, which makes each pair unique. For example, the way they were cut and stamped may vary per pair - as may the degree of antiquing and finish. Distressing can range from a 'perfect' gold to a tarnished brass patina. Or a heart may have small spots of rust, rough cut edges, varying types of hinges or latches, or their 'flames' attached at a slight angle. The cords they hang from may also differ in lenght and/or color; from yellow, to brass, to golden.
Such variations can be considered character statements of the artisans making them - it emulates the lockets' 'perfectly imperfect' vintage appearance.
This listing is for one pair of these lockets. Other items/quantities pictured are not included.
