Eros holds a heart staff with a quiver full of arrows, poised and ready to strike love into the hearts of unsuspecting bystanders in this intaglio carving. Set in an open back, lovely Victorian setting with diamonds on the shoulders, this primarily white agate ring sports a rosy pink quality to the 14ct gold. This is an outstanding piece I would love to keep in my personal collection. It is so rare to find an Eros figure; they are hard to come by and I know that this piece will go so fast. Not only is the subject so romantic, the rendering is also incredibly remarkable.
