Wax seal necklace with dove and peace motto in French

The antique wax seal used in creating this charm dates back to the 1820’s France.

A wax seal necklace depicting a peace dove with an olive branch.

The words framing this piece reads in French:
J’Apporte La Paix
(I Bring Peace)

The dove is a symbol of the soul and of the Holy Spirit.
It signifies loving constancy, peace and gentleness.
According to the biblical story of Noah’s Ark,
a dove was released by Noah after the flood to find land.
It returned with an olive branch in its beak.
This let Noah know that, somewhere, there had to be land.
A dove with olive branch has since become a peace symbol.
