I became a big fan of the peacock’s fancy feathers, years ago when I stayed at a castle in Wales where the beautiful bird had free range of the courtyard. The magical memory came back in a flash when I saw this jaw-dropping cuff. Luminous labradorite, splashy 22kt gold and the sheer size of the piece live up to the bird’s bravura. It would be oh so easy to stylishly strut in the new year with this on my wrist.
