Martha Washington understood her role as a national figure and the meaning conveyed by her personal appearance. She owned a seed pearl pin that was likely one of the "pearl pins and earrings for Mrs. Washington" purchased from New York jeweler Mr. M. Roberts on December 5, 1789. Seed pearl jewelry achieved great popularity in federal America. Mrs. Washington's choice of the dove-shaped pin may have been a declaration of her hope for the future peace and prosperity of the new nation.

This adaptation is silver plated, adorned with faux pearls, and like the original pin measures 1 ¾" x 2 ½".
