In Ancient Roman and Greek mythology, Cupid (Eros), the son of Venus (Aphrodite) rides a dolphin, one of the team that pulls his mother's chariot in the sea. Hand painted on enamel, we see him on this locket. Finely painted in bright pastel colors, he is aiming his bow at someone who's just about to fall in love!  This hefty locket opens to reveal gold brushed silver, and has a floral design etched on the reverse. The unusually rare feature is the halo of glittering plum colored amethysts interspersed with seed pearls. A true prize for antique jewelry collectors of museum quality pieces, he is sure to make you fall in love at first sight!
