Another lovely turban ornament – perhaps not what we’d think of as Islamic art. Pearls, diamonds and emeralds…

I love jewelry from India! The bigger, the better. But what are these pieces doing in the Islamic collection? Did you know that large areas of India was under Muslim rule? The period was called Mogul or the Mughal Empire. It began in 1526 and the last Mughal ruler was overthrown by the British in 1858.
