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.
