Doves are symbolic in many religions and culture. The dove’s symbolism, with its soft graceful looks, white plumage and gentle cooing all make it a symbol of grace, peace, gentleness, and divinity.
The dove’s meaning in the Bible is purity and peace. According to the story of Noah’s Ark, Noah sends forth a dove that returns to the ark with an olive branch from God, which indicated that the floodwaters had receded, and God had forgiven man.
Doves are companions of Venus, the Roman Goddess of Love. Among the Celts, doves are believed to have healing characteristics as well as peace and care for all living creatures.
When you wear these earrings, carry with you the spirit of the dove, sharing love and peace along your way.
“The dove, on silver pinions, winged her peaceful way.”
