Noiseless Cherub

White chalcedony intaglio

Imagery of a Cherub about to climb a ladder to reach a heart in a church, with stars and a crescent moon above

French text reads ‘sans bruit’ (without noise / noiseless)

Why we love it

Ssshhh, indoor voices only for the rundown on this charmer of an intaglio.

In Victorian times, cherubs were seen as protectors of all things sacred, and what could be more sacred than that precious heart of yours?

Now it doesn’t take a great leap of the imagination to realise that the church has religious or spiritual connotations. It’s also where many people choose to declare their love of another. Throw in the moon and stars and we have ourselves a story of unrelenting, all consuming love. That of the 4eva kind.

Which all seems fine and dandy if that’s your bag. But we’re more of the inclusive, what works for you, kind of idea. So here’s our take on it.

Wear this full-on belter of an intaglio in honour of the one who gently and with stealth, took up residence in your heart. The unassuming friend who quietly won you over. The one night stand who never left. The one who, despite your insecurity, came back time, after time, after time.

The protector of your heart. Your soulmate, in whatever way that makes sense for you.

The Romeo to your Juliet. The Sally to your Harriet.

 Come, gentle night, come, loving, black-brow’d night,

Give me my Romeo* and, when he shall die,

Take him and cut him out in little stars,

And he will make the face of heaven so fine

That all the world will be in love with night

 That. Kinda. Love.


*If quoting to your chosen one, we suggest replacing Romeo with their name. Gives it a more personal touch!

You’re welcome.
