Bejewelled Treasures

The Al Thani Collection

In London, the V&A Museum’s ongoing celebration of Indian culture continues with a new exhibition focusing on jewellery traditions from the Asian subcontinent. As part of the museum’s 2015 India Festival, Bejewelled Treasures is a showcase for approximately 100 historical and contemporary pieces, from jewellery and gems to ceremonial artefacts, with some objects on public view for the first time in the UK. Diamond and sapphire turban ornaments made for maharajas sit alongside Cartier’s Art Deco-style brooches in a dazzling display that highlights how Indian styles, techniques and craftsmanship have influenced the fine jewellery genre both past and present.
