You are buying a high quality 2T (2.1mm thick) rhodium plated (silver tone) or gold plated (gold tone) photo dog tag. The image is actually engraved on the tag so you get a high quality image that is embedded into the dog tag. The image does not fade or peel, and lasts for the life of the pendant. Please note the dog tag is NOT black in color. The engraved picture is like a hologram on the shiny surface so you have to turn it to the light to see the engraved image as sold in your local mall. Each 29mm by 50mm pendant comes with a FREE sausage chain which is at least 30 inches long (easily cut down with a pair of scissors)* and a FREE glossy silver color gift box.
