This exhibition explores the cultural and material exchanges between India and Europe through jewelry and precious objects ranging from the seventeenth century to the present. From ceremonial jewelry to swords, daggers, and precious works of art, the exhibition 150 pieces made in India or Europe associated with Mughal emperors, maharajas, and their courts. Gender plays a significant role in this exhibition as, contrary to Western expectations, the most splendid jewelry was supplied exclusively for the male rulers of India.
