Our hearts go out to the people of Boston, especially the friends and families of the victims of yesterday’s bombing. In times like this, we often need a reminder of the fact that we are never alone in in our sorrow, and a tangible symbol such as a piece of dove jewelry can call to mind the continual presence of the source of our comfort.
The Apostle Paul wrote to the church in Corinth about this source of comfort:
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.”
The dove, as a symbol of the Holy Spirit (sometimes referred to as the comforter), is also a symbol of the comfort that we receive from God, and pieces of jewelry that feature that emblem can serve as a reminders to pray for those who are in need of this comfort. The Christian Dove Holy Spirit Pendant in 14K Yellow Gold is a fitting piece to call to mind your prayers. The silhouette of a graceful dove is created by an elegantly curving line of gleaming 14K yellow gold, and hangs from a slender gleaming bale. If you prefer, this simple yet meaningful piece is also available in shining 14K white gold.
Christian pendants that combine doves and crosses can serve as especially powerful reminders of the source of our comfort as they call to mind both Christ’s ultimate act of love on our behalf and the Holy Spirit’s presence. The 14K Gold Holy Spirit Dove Cross Pendant elegantly combines these two symbols, placing a cutout in the shape of a soaring dove in the center of a 1 1/8”-tall cross. Crafted from warm 14K yellow gold, this pendant possesses both unique beauty and a powerful message.
If you’d prefer to keep a symbol of peace and comfort close at hand rather than around your neck, consider one of Apples of Gold’s dove rings for a reminder of the Holy Spirit that you—and others—will see readily. The Holy Spirit Dove Diamond Ring in 14K White Gold is a lovely example. This modern ring with a timeless message combines sleek, shining 14K white gold with a 0.10-carat diamond to create a stylish symbol of God’s constant presence and endless comfort. The center of a silhouette of a dove in flight is set with a glittering round stone as an emblem of the never-ending strength and inner beauty that comes from resting in the arms of the Creator.
Pieces of Christian jewelry that feature doves are always beautiful and meaningful picks, but they’re especially relevant now as we keep the people of Boston in our thoughts and prayers. May the God of all comfort be close to the friends and family members of the victims of this tragedy.
