Lovely necklace made of 925 sterling silver with dove pendant which is blended in white. The dove is the symbol of purity and for the Holy Spirit.
The dove reminds us of two parts of the Bible. Firstly, Noah and the ark. Following the flood Noah sent dove out. The second dove carried a fresh olive leaf in its beak (1. Moses 8:11). The dove is therefore the messenger of the peace which returned.
The second part of the Bible this reminds us of is the Baptism of Jesus. During Jesus’ Baptism (Matthew 3:16) “the Spirit of God descend(ed) like a down (…) upon him”. In this way, the dove belongs as part of the Baptism. The dove the loving words of the Father to his son visible. “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased”. Later the dove becomes a symbol of the Holy Spirit which is the strength of God and acts upon humanity.
