Romance on a rare millefiori antique wax seal with coat of arms, sold by Delta 98 Den Haag

 an antique, late 18th Century wax seal, made of glass, with the technique known as millefiori, with on the silver matrix a coat of arms

we could not trace the coat of arms, with:
a shield per pale, 
on tincture for blue / azure, three five-pointed stars, on gold a red heart, pierced with an arrow, 
the barred helmet is slightly turned to the left, for heraldic: dexter / right
as crest a five-pointed star

the 3 stars on blue with the same (rare) turned helmet and star crest can be found for Paping, a silversmith in Groningen, Netherlands

his wife was also a silversmith, so maybe they made this wax seal and it might have been for personal use, so they did not needed to add hall marks

wouldn't it be romantic if it is a seal to close their letters with love, 
maybe refering to a passionate moment under a night sky full of silver shining stars
