The melting charm of this piece cannot be measured in ordinary jewellery terms. 4 little winged boys, Cupids, Putti, Amorini or whatever term you wish to use, cascade down from a small pair of whispering heads to to the largest smiling head, all with pairs of Gold Wings each with a central Rose Diamond. There is a French Gold mark for 18K on the catch and the reverse of the brooch is well constructed. There is a small unnoticed little chip on the right hand side cheek of the largest head. An utterly charming piece.
