This is the image of an antique wax letter seal. It is an early seal and dates from the late 1600's to the early 1700's.
It features the image of a heart pierced by arrows. The first know depiction of a heart representing romantic love dates to 1250's. The 'wounded heart' indicating lovesickness is depicted by a heart pierced by arrows (Cupid's). Cupid is the God of desire, romantic love, attraction and affection. Therefore to be hit by cupid's arrow was to render the victim 'lovestruck'
The pendant itself measures just over 18mm across the centre. This can alter slightly however due each piece being made individually by hand. Each link and jump ring has been soldered with sterling silver solder, so you don't have to worry about loosing your piece.
