The elegant silhouette of a dove comes in a creamy Mother of Pearl style, overlaid with a sterling silver curlicue design. This little beauty signifies peace, and will bring a sense of calm to its wearer. An outstretched wing shows the bird in motion as it soars through clear skies in search of dry land, just before Noah was granted permission to leave the ark and begin a new life. This necklace is a perfect gift and can be worn every day or on holidays.
The design is adapted from an 18th-19th century Hanukkah menorah from Eastern Galicia/Western Ukraine. The menorah features lovely Rococo scrollwork.
Cynthia Gale's philosophy is simple: to create exquisite, high quality sterling silver jewelry inspired by art and the world around us. Part of Cynthia Gale's GeoMuseum Collection of jewelry, this item is uniquely designed in conjunction with The Jewish Museum. The collection is inspired by their architecture or individual artistic holdings each collection captures the distinct character of the institution. Her passion for supporting their artistic and educational missions has inspired Cynthia to donate a portion of each purchased museum piece to further these goals.
Necklace is made of sterling silver and mother of pearl with 16" length sterling silver chain with hook closure. Pendant dimensions are 22mm x 22mm.
