Handcrafted from an antique intaglio from the 18th century European Grand Tour, this fine silver wax seal charm necklace features Cupid and Psyche – symbols of everlasting love.
Venus, the goddess of love and beauty, was very jealous of Psyche, the most beautiful woman in Sicily, and asked her son Cupid to make Psyche fall in love with a horrible monster. When Cupid saw how beautiful Psyche was, he dropped the arrow meant for her and pricked himself and fell in love with her.
Cupid visited her every night to sleep with her, but demanded that she never cast her eyes upon him. Curious, Psyche held a lamp over Cupid as he slept, but a drop of oil fell from her lamp onto Cupid's shoulder and woke him. She watched him fly away, and she was heartbroken.
After passing various tasks given to her by Venus, Cupid and Psyche were reunited. Jupiter made Psyche a goddess allowing Cupid and Psyche to get married and they lived happily ever after.
The fine silver charm is approximately 3/4” round and hangs from a 16” a sterling silver short-long cable chain. The entire necklace measures 17” long.
Handcrafted in her studio just outside of Houston, Texas, each symbolic wax seal item from The Silver Acorn is hand-stamped in reclaimed fine silver or bronze and will be slightly different and uniquely yours.
