Cupid, son of Venus, was the Roman god of love, attraction and affection is found on these silver dainty designer earrings. Cupid, also known as Amor in Latin, evolved from the Greek god, Eros. To the ancients the bird was a symbol of the soul, the seat of all passion. In this charming intaglio a winged Cupid is interacting with a small bird in the branch above his head creating a lovely tableau with a message about the strength of love and desire. A perfect gift for her on Valentine's Day, a birthday or any special occasion with a loved one.
Sterling silver will retain its luster for years and frequent wearing of your jewelry will help prevent tarnishing. We recommend polishing your sterling silver jewelry with a dry silver polishing cloth available at most grocery or hardware stores. We do not recommend polishing with silver polish as this may remove the antiquing. When you are not wearing your jewelry, storing your silver in the jewelry bag in which it came will help prevent tarnishing.
