Handcrafted from an authentic intaglio from the 18th century European Grand Tour, this talisman 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 bronze talisman is just 1” x 1 ¼” rectangle and is attached to a brown leather cuff that is 3/4” wide and has two snaps on the back making it adjustable to 7 1/2" and 8 1/2" long fitting most women and men.
