On the Wings of a Dove
Our On the Wings of a Dove brings the whimsical pieces of triangle abalone together with grounded, elegant stones of black onyx to create a graceful neoclassical necklace. A vintage goldtone articulated mother of pearl pendant rests on strands of black onyx and abalone. The gorgeous necklace is finished off with a custom gold filled closure of flawless Mother of Pearl. This piece can be paired with our abalone earrings.
Black Onyx aids in self control and decision making. The gem provides protection by absorbing the negative energies of others and enhances the wearer's intuition. It is widely believed that black onyx can eliminate your bad habits and promote emotional well-being.
Abalone has been used in culture for jewelry and ceremonies for hundreds of years. Apache girls would wear discs of abalone on their foreheads in the morning of their initiation into womanhood as they greeted the sun. It encourages the easy flow of feelings and sensitivity to others, creating harmony in relationships. Abalone also has a soothing vibration that can help calm emotions during deep healing and emotionally supports the growth of self.
Mother of Pearl gets it name from the fact that it is iridescent lining of a shell, where pearls can grow. It is said to attract prosperity. It is used in mystical work and lore to heighten intuition, psychic sensitivity and imagination. It is purported to protect from negative influence and transmute negative energy.
