If you are coming to London for Easter or plan to visit the British capital in the next few weeks, two exhibitions are unmissable!
Bejeweled Treasures at V&A Museum
Discover the evolution and enduring influence of Indian jewellery from the Mughal Empire to the modern day. The exhibition will present over 100 spectacular items of Indian and Indian inspired jewellery, including precious jewels of breath-taking quality, exquisite enamelling and bejewelled ornaments.
You are in front of the best jewellery box in the world, so just lifting the lid on a priceless collection!
The V&A is a fitting place to display the treasures of Al-Thani. After all, it was here, in 2009, that the Qatari multimillionaire prince saw a show on the Splendour of India’s Royal Courts, and vowed to create his own treasury.
One of the best exhibition that I seen in my life…. just unforgettable!
• Bejewelled Treasures is at the V&A, London, until 10 April.
