Wax seal necklace - Cupid and Psyche

Product Information
Wax Seal necklace "Cupid and Psyche". (you can read the legend below)

Note: *this listing is for one charm with chain.
*size approx 15-17 mm at the longest side.
*includes an 18" sterling silver necklace chain.

It’s love sneaking upon you!
Tiptoeing ever so quietly and reaching out for the soul.
In heraldry Cupid is Love, and the butterfly resembles the soul.
The symbolism of Cupid chasing a butterfly stems from the ancient legend of Cupid and Psyche.
The Greek name for a butterfly is Psyche, and the same word means the soul.

The wax seal used in creating this pendant is from the mid 1800’s Victorian era, and it is from England.

The wax seal necklaces are made by hand in Myrtle Beach, SC by RQP Studio. They are made from a personal collection of antique wax seals that dates from 1730's to 1890's.

This charm is made of fine silver .999 (which is 99.9% pure silver), and an 18" sterling silver chain is included (sterling silver is 92.5% pure silver).
Please note that the patina on the wax seal charm has been through a oxidization process to give it an antique, vintage look. The wax seal has been pressed into the silver by hand, and this gives each and every wax seal charm a unique look. The wax seal pendant you will be receiving is similar to the one in the picture.
The charm is marked FS.999 on back and also has the RQP Studio hallmark.

The wax seal pendant and chain comes with information of the particular seal used and what it means.
We hope you'll enjoy wearing it!

The Legend of Cupid and Psyche:

Once upon a time there was a king with three daughters. They were all
beautiful, but by far the most beautiful was the youngest, Psyche.
She was so beautiful that people began to neglect the worship of Venus,
the goddess of love and beauty. Venus was very jealous, and asked her son
Cupid to make Psyche fall in love with a horrible monster. When he saw
how beautiful she was, Cupid dropped the arrow meant for her and pricked
himself, and fell in love with her.

Despite her great beauty no-one wanted to marry Psyche. Her parents
consulted an oracle, and were told that she was destined to marry a monster,
and they were to take her to the top of a mountain and leave her there.
The west wind took her and wafted her away to a palace, where she was
waited on by invisible servants. When night came her new husband
visited her, and told her that he would always visit her by night and she
must never try to see him.

Although her invisible husband was kind and gentle with her, and the
invisible servants attended to her every desire, Psyche grew homesick.
She persuaded her husband to allow her sisters to visit her. When they saw
how she lived they became very jealous and talked Psyche into peeking at
her husband, saying that he was a monster who was fattening her up to be
eaten and that her only chance of safety was to kill him.
Psyche took a lamp and a knife, but when she saw her beautiful husband,
Cupid, she was so surprised she dripped some hot wax onto his shoulder,
waking him. He took in the situation at a glance and immediately left
Psyche and the magnificent palace she had been living in disappeared in a
puff of smoke.

Psyche roamed about looking for her husband, and eventually in desperation
approached his mother, Venus. Still angry, the goddess set various tasks for
Psyche, all of which she passed, with a bit of help from ants and river gods.
At last Cupid found out what was going on, and he persuaded Jupiter to
order Venus to stop her persecution of Psyche.
They were married and lived happily ever after -
and it really was ever after since Psyche was made a goddess.
