Bejewelled Treasures: The Al Thani Collection
Time Out says
This showcase of jewellery from the Indian subcontinent will gather 100 artefacts of the type collected by 17th-century Mughal emperors and used in their royal ceremonies. Highlights will include diamonds from the Maharaja of Nawanagar's turban; a jade-handled dagger belonging to Shah Jahan, who built the Taj Mahal; and a gold tiger's head finial from Tipu Sultan's throne. The exhibition will also trace the influence of these fabulous objects on early 20th-century European jewellers (including examples by Cartier), as well as displaying contemporary work that shows the influence of classic Indian adornments.
