Peacock Panache

Peacock Jewellery | Butler & Wilson

Although we don’t have a collection dedicated to peacock jewellery, we have so many stunning pieces now that we felt it was about time we put them together.

Peacocks have been used as a symbol of wealth and beauty since ancient times. The peacock can be seen frequently depicted in art through the ages, dating back to Christian tomb art and ancient Rome.

The peacock originates from India, where it is used as a symbol of royalty. This royal motif made its way into Western culture, with monarchies using peacocks in art and decor.

In Roman times, the peacock was frequently used as a symbol of rebirth and resurrection. This came from observations that a peacock's feather doesn't fade and therefore symbolizes immortality. This is why peacocks were often depicted in Christian tomb art.

Peacocks and their feathers in particular are still very poplar motifs, frequently used in art, decor, interior design and fashion across the globe.

Only male peacocks have the exquisite vibrant plumage that's so often depicted in art and fashion. The purpose of this vibrant display of colours is to attract females (peahens) in mating season. As a general rule, the larger and brighter the plumage, and the more 'eyespots' it has, the more likely they are to find a mate.

Incredibly, a peacock's tail feathers can grow up to six feet, making up 60% of its body length. The vibrant colouring of the peacock is due to microscopic 'crystal-like structures', reflecting light and creating fluorescent colours.

This magnificent creature has inspired some of our creations, and influenced the pieces below. Flaunt your stuff like a peacock and wear your style with pride; who knows, maybe you'll even attract a mate!

 

Crystal Peacock Brooch

This mesmerizing peacock brooch is made up of a rainbow of crystals, creating a striking three-dimensional effect. The peacock's tail is framed with a row of large teardrop shaped crystals. Set on a gold tone metal, the warmth from the base compliments the multi-colour palette. Whilst this brooch is adorned with sparkling crystals in predominately blue and green tones we have also designed the same brooch with predominately pink tones, so you can choose your favourite.

A showstopping piece for any outfit, this brooch is extremely versatile so you can wear it in as many ways as you want.

 

Crystal Peacocks & Flower Drop Necklace

This spectacular necklace features two peacocks, covered head to tail in dainty crystals. The two peacocks meet at the nape of the neck, connected by a single clear crystal. A flower pendant hangs from a link attached to the crystal, sitting just below the peacocks. At the centre of the pendant is a slightly smaller crystal, surrounded by colourful petals, covered in dainty crystals.

No detail has been overlooked; the closer you look at this necklace, the more there is to see. Each individual tail feather is depicted in an ombre colouring, with small crystals filling the frame. Additional crystals have been placed between the feathers for an extra splash of sparkle.

The necklace fastens with a lobster clasp, finished off with an extendable Butler & Wilson chain. This is the perfect piece for Spring and Summer and is available in green or pink.
