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.

    I am getting married Sept. 1 2018 and would LOVE a Ketubah with this design. Could you please provide me with your pricing and process?

    Thank you,

      Hi, Arianna. Mazl tov to you! I’m delighted that you are curious about the circular ketubah featuring peacocks at the top and I’d be happy to talk with you and answer any specific questions right off the bat.

      September 1 is workable for me, and starting early in your process to choose an artist is terrific. I price my pieces based on the complexity of the design, so before I can give you a price range on that particular design, I’d need to know a little more information, specifically for starters would be knowing if you are interested in two languages, and if you’ve determined the text yet. (The Conservative movement text, for example is about twice as long as the traditional [Aramaic] text.) My pieces are ‘generally’ running between $2,000 and $2,800.
      The most helpful thing to do at this point would be to have a short phone conversation. I’m so glad you’ve contacted me, but I take nothing for granted because choosing an artist to craft your ketubah means you are best served when you determine that your artist can truly hear you and work with you in a comfortable back and forth to bring your unique ideas to fruition. If you’d like to set up a time to chat, please let me know a few times and we’ll zero in on one.
      My phone number is 717 608-0190, and my email address is susan@susanlevitonarts.com
      I look forward to hearing from you and getting to know you and your beloved a little bit!

      Susan
