50th Anniversary Peacock Ketubah

After 50 years, this couple chose to mark their anniversary with a beautiful ketubah.  The ring of naturalistic spring wildflowers and the very specific spring green used for lettering the text captured their joy at finding themselves at this wondrous milestone.

Peacocks are an obvious symbol of beauty in many parts of the world, but within Yiddish culture di goldene pave (the golden peacock) stretches beyond that as a literary symbol of the perpetuation of the culture.  The peacocks that flank the top of the ketubah ring are flecked with gold leaf as a nod towards that part of our tradition.
