Double Sided Wax Seal Necklace - "Wise As A Serpent / Innocent As A Dove"
Features the Latin words, SAPIENS SERPENS (Wise Serpent) with a snake on one side, and INGENUA COLUMBA (Innocent Dove) with a dove in flight on the other.
From the Bible, NIV translation, Matthew 10:16: “I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.” “Wise as a serpent and innocent as a dove” is a shortening of the verse, meant to encourage caution and shrewdness while tempering it with kindness and humility, leaving behind a self-serving agenda and moving forward with mature trust and healthy wariness.
Pendant measures approximately 1.2" tall by 0.5" wide, and is .925 sterling silver, nickel-free.
Rolo and ball chains are nickel-free stainless steel. Rolo chain is 2.5mm thick.
Leather cord is sturdy and fully adjustable.
We now have matching pieces and we love them.
The necklace and pendant look even better in person. Delivery was extremely fast and I am very happy with my purchase. Thank you!
