The finesse of Indian craftsmanship and the meaningful beauty of Indian motifs come together in this skillfully handcrafted polki and gold choker necklace.
The highlight of this Indian choker necklace is the peacock handcrafted in gold and dressed in polki/uncut diamonds using the traditional jadai technique. Hints of blue and green meena at a vibrant dimension against the subtle polki. On either side of the peacock are chaand-phool motifs dressed in diamonds and glass-cuts. All these units rest on a gaadi (cushion-like base), which enhances not just the aesthetic but also the wearability of the choker. A sea of seed pearls and drops of gold balls add unparalleled grace to the necklace.
Of all bird motifs in Indian jewelry, the peacock is the most important. It is the vahana (mount) of Lord Shiva and Parvati's second son, Karttikeya, and symbolizes joy, beauty, and pride.
