Doves in Golden Ring

Description:

The wedding gold ring binds the bride and groom in this graceful, delicate design.
A pair of doves holding a gold rings on the right side of the ketubah design symbolize the groom and the bride.
The border is composed by phrases from Song of Songs.

In Judaism, the dove signified the love of God for His Chosen People, the Israelites. White doves, signs of purity, were sacrificial offerings offered for purification at the Temple in Jerusalem. The Old Testament symbolized the dove in various forms. The dove was frequently used in the “Song of Songs,” largely to convey terms of endearment: in their behavior, the doves paired for a long time. “Oh how beautiful, your eyes are like doves …” (Songs 1: 15). “Oh that I had wings of a dove to fly away and be at rest …” (Psalm 55: 6).

The Hebrew word for dove is Yonah , coming from the root meaning of a moaning sound, “I moan like a dove” (Is 38: 14). This would explain the call of many species of doves. The turtle-dove (Tor in Hebrew)  is by far the most common of the dove species.

According to the biblical story (Genesis 8:11), a dove was released by Noah after the flood in order to find land; it came back carrying an olive leaf in its beak, telling Noah that, somewhere, there was land. Christians used Noah’s dove as a peace symbol
