Above in the picture, the Raja, in 1930 when he married Rani Kusum Kumari of Mandi, wearing the important emerald jewel pendant.

Important emerald and diamond pendant/brooch combination, Cartier, 1927.

The surmount set with a carved emerald flower, framed with circular-cut diamonds, supporting a plaque set with an hexagonal polished emerald and calibré-cut emeralds, supporting three emerald drops with onyx rondelle crowns and circular-cut diamond terminals, unsigned, brooch fitting detachable, one small emerald deficient.

The pendant will be  offered at auction by Sotheys, Geneve November 2019. Accompanied by SSEF report no. 108686, stating that the emeralds are of Colombian origin, with a minor to a moderate amount of oil in fissures.

 

Cartier’s use of mughal stones in jewellery was an important aspect of their Indian style, these designs were dominant between 1913 and 1930.

Raja is a title for a monarch equivalent to king or princely ruler in the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia.

This pendant also calls to mind the brooch worn by Marjorie Merriweather Post, captured in a painting by Giulio de Blaas in 1929.

Nice to see it again, we have made a website of the important diamond on the Royal Magazin – in 2006…. now on display  at the Grand Palais Paris:

Les joyaux de la collection Al-Thani au Grand Palais

Ornement de turban L’œil du Tigre Cartier Londres, 1937 – Diamant Oeil du Tigre de 61,50 carats et diamants sur platine

From the Great Mughals to the Maharajas -The exhibition repositions Indian jewellery traditions within the rich and complex cultures of the courts where they first originated, demonstrating how the profusion of stones and precious metals in the subcontinent led to the development of a sophisticated ornamental culture. Entering first in a Royal Treasury, visitors will find themselves surrounded by an exceptional group of dynastic gems, among which are the celebrated Agra, Idol’s Eye and Arcot II diamonds, all originating in India’s celebrated Golconda diamond mines. These are complimented by emeralds and spinels, some engraved with the names and titles of the rulers who owned them.

Shown through over two hundred and seventy exceptional pieces from The Al Thani Collection, together with major works on loan from

prestigious institutions and private collections.

Maharaja of Patiala Diamond-Chocker  Patiala Diamond Collar:http://www.royal-magazin.de/india/patiala-diamond-chocker.htm

Maharadscha von Patiala SchmuckDer Maharaja bestellte 1928 bei Cartier für sich ein eng am Hals liegendes Brillant-Halsband aus runden, umlaufenden Gliedern. In der Mitte sitzt jeweils ein großer, gelber Diamant, die sicher aus dem Besitz des Maharajas stammen. Diese Steine wurden später einmal entfernt und es dauerte für die Restauration acht Monate um entsprechenden Ersatz zu finden. Das rekonstruierte Collier ist 2014 in Paris im Grand Palais zu sehen, hier der Bericht als Video:
