Delightful Victorian carved angel skin coral cupid ear pendants, circa 1860. These earrings depict Cupid riding a dolphin which is a common sighting in mythological imagery. Cupid is the son of Venus, and the dolphin refers to the myth that Venus emerged from the sea. Jewelry during the Victorian era was sentimental and whimsical. These earrings capture the era perfectly, with a cherubic Cupid wonderfully depicted on a dolphin, capturing the mythic imagery. The carving itself from two pieces of lovely angel skin coral that has the sweetest tinge of rose to it. These rare one of a kind earrings are collectible and wearable. The earrings are 1.25 inches long.
