The peacock has many historical references and stories attached to it. The Ancient Greeks believed the peacock was a symbol of immortality, whilst many thought it to ward off evil spirits with its many feathery eyes.
In Christian mythology, the peacock was a symbol of abstinence - and while the bird sheds its feathers and regrows them seasonally, the bird was referred to as a symbol for Christ’s rebirth.
Another historically important bird is the Crane. Medieval legend has it that the bird on look-out duty would hold a pebble in its claw, and if it falls asleep the pebble will drop and wake it up. This little detail has been taken in the form of a diamond pebble hanging from the claw of the peacock, as a symbol of security and protectiveness.
Please note, each diamond is uniquely included, and may slightly differ from the one pictured.
