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
Queen Ena in her wedding gown and later – in the painting, with all her royal attributes, not least her fleur de lys tiara which was given to her by the King in 1906 as a wedding present, made by the Madrid jeweller Ansorena.
