Rate this:
Indian jewellery is among the most opulent and finely wrought in theworld and this book draws on over 100 pieces from the V&A's superb collection, many never published before. Nick Barnard illuminated the social context and symbolic meanings as well as the varied techniques employed by craftsmen. He describes how jewellery was worn and by whom, how stones were sourced and cut, how traditions of making and wearing varied in different parts of the country, and how the V&A's own collection itself was brought together by travellers and scholars over the years.
