In ancient times, Chinese Emperors, believing that peacocks were the earthly representation of the mighty phoenix, gave peacock feathers to returning successful warriors symbolizing overwhelming triumph over the enemies. As a symbol of victory, over time peacock feathers and jewelry began evolving into an auspicious image of success and good career prospect.
We have adorned this 18k golden peacock with sumptuous gemstones including rubies, sapphires, diamonds, tsavorite and of course, our favorite imperial green jade.
Starting with his face an individual ruby below the arch of a golden eyebrow gives the peacock a hypnotizing majestic gaze. Three additional rubies transform his crest into a ruby crown. His diamond encrusted neck gives way to a beautiful body of deep blue sapphires and shimming green tsavorite.
Lastly the peacock's wonderful plumage. Nineteen imperial jadeite gemstones, each one ringed by diamond feathers forms his beautiful tail. This imperial jadeite has beautiful marbling so under sunlight it’s translucency will make a wonderful vivid and lively sight.
