Victorian 15kt Enameled Cherub + Diamond Heart Pendant
A lovely and romantic pendant from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This beautiful heart-shaped piece is crafted in 15kt yellow gold and displays a charming image of a winged cherub on the front. The hand painted enameled picture features wonderful details, including rosy pink skin, vibrant blue veined wings, and wavy brown hair. The cherub is holding a crescent moon motif, that is lined with sparkling old Rose Cut accent diamonds, adding a wonderful light-catching appeal. Finishing the design is a lovely matte surface, allowing the beautiful image and diamonds to come alive. Resting at the top is a 14kt gold fluted bail (stamped with a "585" gold purity mark on the inside), perfect for hanging from a favorite chain or charm bracelet. A gorgeous and romantic Victorian piece that would make a wonderful addition to any collection!
