Gold, enamel and gemstone bangle

Gold, enamel and gemstone bangle

Mughal dominions area bangles/ bracelets with Makara-head terminals, set with diamonds, rubies and emeralds, with enamel. Late 17th to early 18th century.

This is part of the Emperors & Jewels exhibition: Treasures of the Indian Courts from the al-Sabah Collection, Kuwait. On loan to the Aga Khan Museum in Toronto.

On Boxing Day (no, not when people punch each other after Christmas, but a British tradition of 26 December as a holiday), I met up with John FitzGerald (Ipernity) or John FitzGerald (flickr) to visit the Aga Khan Museum, which is dedicated to Islamic artifacts. Special thanks to John for alerting me about the Emperors & Jewels special exhibition.
