Really cool little locket. It differs from the standard hinged lockets in that it opens vertically and the cord that it is strung from is what keeps it closed. Sturdy too, I have worn it nonstop since I bought it and it shows no signs of weakening/chipping or anything similar.If I had a complaint, it would be that since you have to take it off the chain to open it, it's kind of a hassle to show anyone what you keep inside, or change the scented oil. A plus of that though, is that it's virtually impossible for it to accidentally open, so what you put into it stays there.To me the uniqueness of the piece makes it well worth the 20 extra seconds opening it takes. It's a great piece for turning into an amulet, there's just enough room for herbs or a small written blessing.
