There is always a concern when you buy jewelry online, as you never get a chance to feel it and to handle it; this locket met every expectation and didn't disappoint. The necklace has really good weight and it's big enough without being too flashy. The locket is easy to open but the clasp doesn't feel cheap. It snaps shut securely and feels as if it will last. Also, the packaging comes with a template for the pictures and the locket has plastic coverings for the pictures within. The chain that is provided is pretty strong and is of very good quality. My wife said that she has always wanted a locket and she was very surprised and happy with this gift.
