Review – R2-D2 heart necklace

A little while ago I purchased this cute R2-D2 ‘heart’ necklace, after noticing it had already sold out on-line from Hot Topic, my usual stop for Bioworld x Star Wars accessories. I paid US$15.95 from a seller on Amazon, which is a little more than Hot Topic’s original price of US$10.50, but as I already had the earrings (included in a different set, reviewed here) I was quite keen to pick up the matching necklace before it completely sold out. It seems the necklace is no longer available (on it’s own) from the usual stockists, but a set which includes both the necklace and matching earrings is available from sellers on Amazon and eBay for around US$25.

The silver necklace features a heart shaped pendant of R2-D2, set under clear resin. The image of R2-D2 is nice and clear, the classic features of the astromech’s design fit the heart shape nicely. The back of the pendant features the standard copyright text ‘(c) Lucasfilm Ltd. & TM’. The heart measures approximately 2.5cm across, larger than the matching stud earrings (which measure 1.5cm across). The chain measures approximately 47cm long, with a further 7.5cm for adjustment, and closes with a standard lobster style clasp. Overall it’s a very cute R2-D2 jewelry item that I’m happy to have for my collection.
