Love this pendant! The chain is long enough to slip over my head without undoing the clasp. A US quarter makes the perfect template for cutting out a photo to add into this locket! Or…put the quarter inside the locket (it fits perfectly!) in the event that you bump into a pay phone that you’d like to use. :) When ordering this pendant if you want a predominately gold pendant with silver chain, order the silver choice. If you want a predominately silver pendant with a gold chain, order the gold choice. Just order by the color of chain you usually prefer and you’ll love the attached pendant too. I hope Patricia will continues to create long necklaces like this one that have the substantial chains and even the double chains. Very nicely made chains! Buy this pendant, it won’t disappoint!
