Solomon 5:12  (King James Version)
His eyes are as the eyes of doves by the rivers of waters, washed with milk, and fitly set.

His eyes
Rather, "His eyes are as doves;" the deep blue pigeon, the common dove in the East, whose brilliant plumage vibrates around his neck every sparkling hue, every dazzling flash of colour. And this pigeon standing amid "the torrents of water," or the foam of a waterfall, would be a blue centre with a bright space like the iris of the eye, surrounded by the white.
1:15 4:1 Hebrews 4:13

fitly set
Hebrew sitting in fulness, that is, fitly placed,
and set as a precious stone in the foil of a ring.
