The Al Thani Collection exhibition showcases India's great influence on major European jewelry firms.


 

It is easy to see why the Al Thani Jewelry Collection causes so much fascination worldwide. The historic private collection of Sheik Hamad bin Abdullah Al Thani is famous for featuring several centuries of jewelry tradition and craftsmanship in India. They proudly incarnate the evolution and enduring influence of different styles; from the Mughal period to the early 20th century.


The traveling exhibit was admired at the
Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and now the Victoria & Albert Museum in London proudly presents the stunning art and beauty of Indian Jewelry. The exhibition will be open to the public until March 28, 2016.
