Yesterday I went to the amazing Maharajah exhibition at the V&A. Stunning jewellery (such as this Cartier necklace above),

bejewelled belt buckets,

varying forms of transport be it a 1927 phantom Rolls Royce or a silver palanquin,

and golden thrones make an amazing exhibition. One of the things that I enjoyed seeing most was the modern/Art Deco Maharajah section, which I will also do a post on later this week!

Oh! I squinted sideways at your pictures and then turned my head away! Coming to London at Xmas to see this show, it looks too exciting already! Indian jewelry is to give up a million kingdoms for! Thanks for the preview!

Such a rich and lavishly beautiful culture.
