Handcrafted from an antique intaglio from the 1700-1800's, this wax seal charm features three putti angels.
Putti are distinct from cherubim. In the plural, "the Cherubim" refers to the biblical angels. While "cherubs" represent the second order of angels, putti are secular and present a non-religious passion. However, in the Baroque period of art, the putti came to represent the omnipresence of God. Putti, in the ancient classical world of art, were winged infants that were believed to influence human lives and are endearing symbols that suggest love and romance.
This bronze talisman is substantial at approximately a 1 1/4" x 1 1/2"oval and hangs from a 14k gold-filled short-long cable chain with a lobster clasp closure. The entire necklace measures 18” long.
