Having issues engraving on Shiny Stainless Steel

Having some issues with engraving on the following item. I am using cermark spray to first coat the material however perhaps my settings are wrong or i am unable to simply mark the metal because it is coated. Any help would be awsome. Here is the material i am trying to mark: Amazon.com: MicLee Heart Shape Photo Locket Pendant Necklace Stainless Steel Chain 19.7 Inch for Women: Jewelry
