Numerous studies were done on different shawl styles used together with evening gowns and on shapes, curls, and colors of peacock and best ways to show the beauty of peacock feather to find a way to interpret it in a high jewelry.
According to the concept of the design, it was tried to create a form which was an abstract interpretation of peacock aesthetic attributes and the free style of shawl. So, the biggest challenge for this concept was the arrangement of the stones to make the best possible effect and as there were lots of colors included in this design, it was very hard to arrange them in a way to enhance one another beauty, color and reflection while having the best possible composition of colors and forms in 3d. Next was to make the necklace comfortable and wearable, despite being made of several small and sophisticated parts to be manufactured easier.
