The only heart that has a small dent on the back is the chrysanthemum heart. The locket closes with a "snap" and the stones are all secure. Now, about the Lampl padlock... The photos of the padlock are magnified in order to get a good idea of its condition. As you can see, there is enamel loss at the bottom of the heart. There is a hairline crack at the top, which splits off into a few hairline cracks. While this is s gorgeous piece, it is pre-owned and definitely was worn. I can I just imagine "Maxine" putting on her puffy heart bracelet everyday, some 60-70 years ago! So, this padlock does not open or anything like that. I'm not going to pull on it. It was once a keychain or a heart for a necklace. With some creativity, it is now a very cool looking bracelet padlock. It stays shut just fine. Please use the photos. The chain is in excellent vintage condition.Good Luck & Thank You!SHIPPING: - US Addresses Only - Insured First Class via USPS - I LOVE to Combine!PAYMENT: - PayPal - Payments made within 48 hrs greatly appreciated!
