PRODUCT DETAILS
Awakening a new understanding of the diverse tradition of Indian jewellery spanning four hundred years, the first edition of Beyond Extravagance in 2013 revealed for the first time the exceptional Al Thani Collection of the most important royal Indian jewels from the Mughal Empire to the British Raj to the twenty-first century. Exploring the centuries-long tradition of fine jewellery and art objects in India, to contemporary interpretations that continue to evolve today, this spectacular volume has been expanded and updated to highlight over 400 items in this magnificent collection. Key pieces include the carved jade wine cup of Emperor Jahangir, the Shah Jahan Dagger; inscribed imperial spinels belonging to emperors Akbar, Jahangir, and Shah Jahan; the Arcot II diamond and the Taj Mahal Emerald; and a ruby and pearl choker made by Cartier for the Maharaja of Patiala.

Presenting a journey through the history of Indian jewelled objects, this splendid new edition features updated chapters by renowned jewellery experts including Vivienne Becker (The Impossible Collection of Jewellery); Katherine Prior (Maharajahs’ Jewels); Michael Spink, a specialist in Islamic and Indian art who lectures at the University of London; and Robert Skelton, one of the foremost authorities on Indian painting and fine objects. Edited by Amin Jaffer, senior curator of The Al Thani Collection, each section includes a detailed catalogue raisonné of featured pieces.
