Where do we begin? The main star of this show is a beautifully layered antique sardonyx stone depicting Cupid rowing his little boat on the Sea of Love, using his arrow and little toga cloth for a sail, and his bow as a tiller. This hand-carved seal, hailing from the 1800's has stunning details in the rippling of the ocean and all the tiny nuances of Cupid himself! Because of its special shape, we were able to set this gorgeous little beauty in a very unusual setting where the tips of the prongs do not have to breech the table to hold down the seal. Rather, sheer pressure holds this stone in place, with graceful wave-like prongs swooping up and down all around, but open enough to show off the bands of agate in the side of the stone (there are gorgeous tiny orange/red speckles peppered through the side of the chocolate brown layer). It is utterly romantic, feminine on the hand, and just an intensely sentimental piece that we are sure will become your favorite heirloom ring.
