"One of the most heartbreaking examples of a locket we have ever encountered. The details hand chased in this articulated book memorialize the pain and anguish of a Mother who has lost a young child. At the time this love token was created, this level of craftsmanship notes a reverence for the kind of heartbreak that no time can truly heal."
