The oval locket is 18.5mm across including the hinge and clasp, and 31mm high including the loop, plus the bail on top which is around 6mm tall and 4mm wide. Each side contains a white fabric backing suitable for placing hair, a photo or fabric onto. Over the fabric is a thin clear plastic glass-like screen to protect the photo.
