Victorian Pink & White Tassie Cupid Necklace


Cupid, with his dubious parentage (was it Night and Ether? Aphrodite and Ares?), is the god of love and desire. The cupid of this tiny pink and white tassie pendant is rendered in mid stride with wings extended. In one hand he holds an unruly bouquet of flowers. Formerly the head of a stickpin, we've converted this tiny work of art into a pendant and strung it on an 18" 14k gold chain.
