The Largest-Ever Exhibit of Indian Jewelry Opens in Moscow

The most comprehensive exhibition of Indian jewelry ever staged has just opened at the State Museums of Moscow Kremlin in Russia. India: Jewels that Enchanted the World features more than 300 pieces of handmade jewelry—including necklaces, earrings, wrist cuffs, brooches, and turban and hair ornaments—some dating back to the 17th century. New pieces will also be presented by the renowned Indian jewelry designers Bhagat and Munnu. The exhibition, a collaboration between the State Museums of Moscow Kremlin and the Indo-Russian Jewelry Foundation, features items culled from over 30 museums, including the British Museum, Qatar’s Doha Museum of Islamic Art, Switzerland’s Musée Barbier-Mueller, and London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, as well as private collections including those of the jewelry houses Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels. The ornate designs on display highlight the use of gold, platinum, and precious gems ranging from emeralds and rubies to sapphires and diamonds. The exhibition will run just over three months, from April 12 through July 27. (http://www.kreml.ru/en-US/exhibitions)
