18 Karat Gold and Diamonds Necklace with Cupid ‘Eros’ and Musician Angels
This beautiful gold necklace is an handmade masterpiece of Italian goldsmith’s art. Each angel plays a different musical instrument and in the center there is an angel, Cupid, who is about to shoot an arrow. Cupid, for the Romans, is the image of the God of love – (from the common name cupīdo -dĭnis “greed”), corresponding to the Greek god Eros, represented as a winged boy armed with a bow and arrows with which he wounded divinity and men, arousing in them the loving passion. The wings of angels are made of white gold and brilliants. The “floral” interludes between the angels are made with small rubies and diamonds. It is a handwork of fine and complicated workmanship, and the necklace is a unique piece.
