13/16 x 1/2 inch two-tone polished sterling silver descending dove and ribbon cross necklace on 18 inch stainless steel rhodium plated chain. The design includes a gold plated descending dove on a sterling silver ribbon cross pendant. The dove is the symbol of the Holy Spirit. When Christ was baptized by John the Baptist, a dove descended on him, according Matthew 3:16 and Mark 1:10. The dove is sometimes depicted with an olive branch in its mouth as a symbol of peace. It also symbolizes God's grace. Includes an elegant deluxe velour jewelry box.
