I’ve been meaning to add a comparison of two of Samantha’s lockets for a long time and just got around to doing it. The first one, locket A, came with her accessories straight from AG. The second one, locket B, I ordered as a replacement part because I wasn’t satisfied with locket A. They were hard to photograph because of the glare, but I did the best I could to capture the differences.
Locket A It is much darker than locket B. It’s more of a brassy color. This locket does not snap close. It came on a card marked American Girl.
The heart and leaf design is not as defined and can be seen on the inside of the locket. The link between the brooch and the locket appears to be a little shorter.
There’s a bigger space between the pin and the brooch, which causes it to hang forward instead of flat against the dress. The pin on locket A closes on the doll’s right.
This one is a lighter, golden color. It’s hard to see the difference in photos. You can actually hear this one snap together when closed. The design is much more defined than Locket A. You can’t see the design on the inside of the locket. There is just a smooth surface. I already pasted Sam’s pictures inside so there’s no pic of this. There’s less space between the pin and the brooch. It hangs flat against Samantha’s dress. The pin on this locket closes on the doll’s left. This one came on a card marked Pleasant Company.
