The popular bird necklace just got a brand-new coat. We’re talking, of course, of our peace dove pendant and her (his) new gunmetal look. Shebang. The one-of-a-kind dovies are now available in gold, silver, rose gold, and gunmetal. Options are so nice, aren’t they? Janet Mavec, founder of Orchard Jewelry, wanted to give more than one for her most popular piece.
The peace dove necklace can be worn with almost anything- it's classic. It creates an inner calm when worn.
It can be thrown around your neck. No need to clasp or unclasp.
The Peace Dove was the first in the Bird Haven collection. Designer Janet Mavec started sketching it the day after 9/11. Initially, she sold the dove in solid gold.
Pablo Picasso was fascinated with them. His lithograph of a dove became a famous symbol of peace in 1949 at the International Peace Congress in Paris. The painter famously said: “I stand for life against death; I stand for peace against war.” Don’t we all?
Picasso’s daughter was named Paloma, which is Spanish for “dove.”
According to biblical stories, Noah released a dove to find land after the flood.
Doves mate for life, and they always lay two eggs. Just two (with the rarest of exceptions).
An unsuspecting mourning dove in the Tri-State area was the model for this particular charm.
