Discover the evolution and enduring influence of Indian jewellery from the Mughal Empire to the modern day. The exhibition will present over 100 spectacular items of Indian and Indian inspired jewellery, including precious jewels of breath-taking quality, exquisite enamelling and bejewelled ornaments.

Bejewelled Treasures: The Al Thani Collection highlights Indian traditions in design and craftsmanship, focussing on centuries-old techniques and processes. It allows you to see first-hand India’s influence on jewellery made by leading European houses in the 1920s and see contemporary pieces by modern masters, still drawing on those Indian traditions today.
