This love is the rose that blooms forever. Hear the blessings dropping their blossoms around you.
The inseparable lovers that are these yearning peacocks, we take you through the tale of these mystical, magical creatures and share the inspiration behind the many gold-plated silver Peacock Jewelry by Blue Turban. A symbol of poetry, nature & love, their dance as well as their pensive yearning, is their constant dialogue with their lover.We explore the stages of love through these flowery winged magicians & verses of the esoteric Jalaluddin Rumi’s.
“There is a candle in your heart, ready to be kindled.
There is a void in your soul, ready to be filled.
You feel it, don’t you?”
1. The Nascent love: It is those stolen unseen glances, unexplained your heart grows fonder at merely their sight. As they smile shyly, the rose kissed hue on your cheeks does not remain unseen. Like a secret seeping out from your heart, it pours out in the open bit by bit.Not completely unearthed, it is growing bit by bit.It’s a beautiful, blissful time full of wonder.
“The minute I heard my first love story,
I started looking for you, not knowing
how blind that was.
Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere.
They’re in each other all along.” – Rumi
This gold-plated silver half dome earrings with carved peacock by Blue Turban conveys just that stage of new, shy love, growing in the womb. Always present but yet to be discovered.
2. Dance of love: It’s a tango, you were already complete, yet you find yourself so incomplete without them. Like two pieces of a puzzle which make sense only when they come together.It’s a celebration, everything is. The walking together, the holding hands, the laughter, the food we share, the sleeping, the fighting together. It is all just a dance. A dance to draw us in closer. Inseparable and fused.
“When I am with you, we stay up all night.
When you’re not here, I can’t go to sleep.
Praise God for those two insomnias!
And the difference between them.” – Rumi
This Gold plated silver earrings with double domed peacocks decorated with green onyx by Blue Turban show the lovers conjoined together. Merging into one, the dance of love, the celebration of finding the missing half.
3. Separation / The Angst: As fate plays its hand, the wounded, heartbroken Peacock is separated from its beloved. As the two lovers part and go into silence, pensive and lovelorn. The painful unmerge happened the very next moment after the merge. The peacock no longer recognizes the self. “You took parts of me & left parts of you”. Who am I, who are? Are you me and me you?
“Your body is away from me
but there is a window open
from my heart to yours.”
From this window, like the moon
I keep sending news secretly.
“silence is the language of god,
all else is poor translation.” – Rumi
4. Waiting & yearning / The Faith / The Pining : As the peacock pines for its beloved, gently healing the hurt to be whole. An unlikely friend, faith attired in white, makes an appearance and embraces the peacock by its soul.
“The wound is the place where the Light enters you. I will be waiting here….
For your silence to break,
For your soul to shake,
For your love to wake!” – Rumi
This Gold plated silver hoop earrings beautified with peacock motifs and dangling pearls by Blue Turban shows the resilience of the Peacock’s faith. Alone but not lonely, in deep prayer to the divine, praying to be united with whom the Peacock saw the divine in.
The gods finally hear the wounded peacock, in time for-
5. The Divine Union: As the Peacocks unite unfold their feathers:
The shy and dreamy peacock now joyous at the union after all the waiting tells its beloved
“With the Beloved’s water of life, no illness remains
In the Beloved’s rose garden of union, no thorn remains.
They say there is a window from one heart to another
How can there be a window where no wall remains” – Rumi
This Gold plated silver long earrings with peacock ending jhumka by Blue Turban show that when the rain-bearing clouds embrace their beloved lovelorn scorched earth, it’s sole witness, the reunited lovelorn peacocks immersed in love and gratitude bowed their heads and their feathers up into a prayer to the divine.

6. We are the world: The dance of the cosmos – you dance because, every bit of the universe dances with you.
“Dance, when you’re broken open.
Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off.
Dance in the middle of the fighting.
Dance in your blood.
Dance when you’re perfectly free.” – Rumi
