This anatomically correct rendering of a human heart as a bronze pendant is a good reminder that our hearts are strong, resilient muscles. In one of Barbara Kingsolver's books, a character remarks how it's the liver that should be considered the fragile, "breakable" organ, not the heart. Hearts are tough. In an average lifetime, a human heart will beat about 2 billion times. In a year, your heart will pump over 2 1/2 million liters of blood throughout your body (that's about 650,000 gallons). All this is from an organ about the size of your fist. The bronze heart is paired with a thin 16" 12kt gold-fill curb chain necklace with spring ring clasp. If you love the design but would prefer it in sterling silver, see your heart is a muscle (silver)! Cost: $42.00 USD
