Bejewelled Treasures: the Al Thani Collection

Bejewelled-Treasures-the-Al-Thani-Collection

Date(s): Nov 21, 2015 – Mar 28, 2016
Location: Cromwell Rd, Kensington, London, UK

Spectacular objects, drawn from a single private collection, will explore the broad themes of tradition and modernity in Indian jewellery. Highlights will include Mughal jades, a rare jewelled gold finial from the throne of Tipu Sultan, and pieces that reveal the dramatic changes that took place in Indian jewellery design during the early 20th century. The exhibition will examine the influence that India had on avant-garde European jewellery made by Cartier and other leading houses and will conclude with contemporary pieces made by JAR and Bhagat, which are inspired by a creative fusion of Mughal motifs and Art Deco ‘Indian’ designs.
