It’s a peace symbol for a new era- it bring inner calm when worn. Designer Janet Mavec sketched it from a live model; the wings are so detailed that this bird looks ready to take flight.
You may have seen other dove designs before, but only Orchard’s design is realistic. Why should we change nature?
The jewelry chain is also integral to the design. The chain is a design in itself. The Lobster clasp can hook into any links on the chain so it can be worn at any length.
When you want to have a calm come over you, wear your peace dove.
The classic Peace Dove is delicate—just right for a casual work dress. 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.”
You can see doves nearly anywhere except the deep forrest.
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.
