This is a beautifully done peacock in sterling silver marked 925. Size is about 3" long. Very nice detail and an asset to any fashion !
The peacock was a favorite subject for art and jewelry in the Art Nouveau period. It was thought to be a symbol of light over darkness, the spreading of the tail representing the universe. Adversely, the peacock is said to be a symbol of pride and vanity mostly because of the strutting behavior at mating time. Whichever you believe, this beautiful bird brings a gorgeous blending of colors for us all to enjoy !
Most of our items are vintage unless we tell you otherwise. Therefore expect them to be in "Vintage" condition. This means normal wear and some softening of stone sparkle is to be expected. If either is in excess we will note it in our description. We do not thoroughly clean our items, leaving that to the preferences of the buyer, and if there are any serious problems, flaws or noticeable repairs, we will always try to note it in the description. Realizing that nothing can replace a "hands-on" inspection of an item, if you are not satisfied with your purchase for any reason, we will always accept returns or otherwise try to make you a satisfied customer. Our return policy can be found at the top of each item page.
If you ask us to hold an item for you and then change your mind about purchasing, please let me know so that we can remove the hold and release for sale. Thank you for shopping with us !
