We’ve got the peacock on a pedestal, what with its place of pride as the National Bird in India. The fact that this beautiful bird with that natural crown atop its head, its stunning colours and majestic tail feathers that fan out perfectly is immensely appealing, aesthetically; makes for the prettiest picture. This bird, in particular, has played muse to innumerable creative minds the world over, in particular, to our very own designers at Narayan Jewellers, the Ramakant Ambalal Chokshi Group. The peacock is the mascot at NJ so it is only natural that it features as a part of multiple designs with regard to different pieces of jewellery.

In this particular award-winning design, the proud peacock perched atop a punkah each worked seamlessly into the design of the earrings. This style of earring goes by the name Kaan, which literally translates to “ear”. The design is shaped exactly like a human ear and is quite a popular choice when it comes to bridal jewellery; it covers the entire ear thus embellishing it beautifully.
The designers at NJ went with the magnificence that defines the aura of the arresting bird and selected the most precious of gems to incorporate into the design. Brilliant vilandi diamonds, vivid rubies, striking emeralds and lustrous accents of pearls! Simplicity at its most authentic and elegant best shown in the uncomplicated shapes and the line of precious hearts encompassing the diamonds that line the outer ear.

The punkah that dangles from this Kaan style earring; the fan upon which the peacock is meant to perch is a detachable piece of jewellery. The punkah, much like the pendants upon the necklace, is studded with the very same rubies, vilandi diamonds, the emeralds and those lovely strings of pearls.
Nothing short of admirable precision shines through this well-thought-out design that is clearly laden with inspiration from history, culture and an inheritance of impeccable taste.
