Of Peacocks and Royal Gardens

Featuring Bluestone Jewelry's Peacock Collection

bluestone blue book fever, bluestone latest collection peacock jewelry

Follow me into a Royal Garden, where Peacocks dance with pride.

Where they aren’t afraid to be who they are,

Free of bans, free of poachers and free of people and their judgements,

Follow me, for this garden is mystical and you wouldn’t find it otherwise,

Follow me, for this place welcomes only those with a creative streak and souls of positivity.

– By Chaithra

I have forever been obsessed with peacocks, the pride in their walk, their vibrant iridescent plumage and the mystery in their eyes.  So, you can imagine my excitement when Bluestone sent me this set from their latest BlueBook Collection. Dainty in its design, embellished in white, it shows off the skilled  craftsmanship it was made from, to make us feel like Princesses who own peacocks in their royal garden.

Styling Note: A custom-made maxi dress draped with floral print stole, added gold accents with this waist belt and the cuff, that gave the look a very roman feel. To be honest, it was inspired by Khaleesi’s (Daenerys Targaryen’s) attire in Game of thrones, from that episode where she attends a social gathering in the city of Qarth. The pendant and earring set from the Bluestone collection is given a twist and used as a maang tika or an accessory over the forehead, completes the look along with a matching earring.

I enjoy designing my own dresses, this dress featured here was a simple DIY. What added more character was this lovely Peacock pendant and earring set from Bluestone’s latest collection – The Blue Book Fever. They have three different collections to offer from this range being catering to festive and work wear. The latest peacock collection is for every woman, who is royal and special in her own ways. Do take a look at the Bluestone’s website for more, you may also follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

  73. you look lovely in blue! that maang tika is so pretty! havent heard of such an accessory before. i wonder how do you fix it over your forehead? doesn’t it slides around?

    • Thank you Mia for those wonderful words. And the other side of the maang tika is fastened with a bobby pin onto your hair. So, it wouldn’t really slide as much! 🙂
