"Treasury of the World: Jeweled Arts of India in the Age of the Mughals"
2001-10-18 until 2002-01-13
Metropolitan Museum of Art
New York, NY, USA

The Mughal rulers of India (15261858) maintained a court that was renowned for its wealth, high culture, and love of precious objects, all of which were epitomized in the jeweled arts of the period.

Drawn from the uniquely extensive holdings of The al-Sabah Collection in Kuwait, this dazzling display presents more than 300 works of the Mughal period, including jeweled items of personal adornment, princely weapons, carved jade and crystal bowls set with precious stones, spinels (balas rubies) inscribed with the titles of their imperial owners, and other art-historically important pieces representing the period of several imperial reigns, as well as the sumptuous and refined courts of the Deccan, in the southern part of India.
