Star Sapphire Dove Necklace
This lyrical necklace is hand fabricated in Argentium, a tarnish-resistant sterling silver that is 100% recycled, and features a lovely star sapphire cabochon. The forged centerpiece measures about 1.75" wide, and the chain measures approximately 17" with about 1" of adjustable link (total of 18"). The chain is finished with a hand forged hook and ring clasp.
This necklace is inspired by moonlit dove's wings. The dove is sacred to Aphrodite, as well as being a symbol of the Holy Spirit, and Sophia, the goddess of wisdom.
Sapphire is the traditional birthstone for the month of September. Sapphire, in all its celestial hues, is a stone of wisdom and royalty, of prophecy and divine favor. It is associated with sacred things and considered the gem of gems, a jewel steeped in the history and lore of nearly every religion. To the ancient and medieval world, Sapphire of heavenly blue signified the height of celestial hope and faith, and was believed to bring protection, good fortune and spiritual insight. The star sapphire represents the manifestation of Divine knowledge and Light into the physical world; the three lines that cross in the six-rayed star are said to represent faith, hope and destiny.
