A very special pendant of the Victorian era. An old mine cut diamond is crimped into a bezel setting, held aloft in a buttercup setting fixed to the bail. Dangling below, a downward-facing dove in spectacular detail and tri-color gold. A perfect 3-dimensional figure, it’s textured to show every feather, and tri-color gold additionally accents the wing and tail feathers. 
A descending dove was used at times to represent the holy spirit, but the positioning and small “X” shape at its neck suggest that this dove has been shot, as hunting-themed jewelry was a status symbol of Victorian times.
