Something Indian

A PAIR OF IMPORTANT INDIAN KADAS : Each anklet set with a series of twelve rose-cut diamond flowerheads on the convex edge to a gold and dark blue enamel background, the sides with floral and foliate polychrome enamel on a white ground to a central line of green and gold decoration, opens by way of screw fitting, Jaipur, 19th century, 694.4 and 687.5 grams, 12.5 cm diameter, 3.3 cm wide

In my Dream Jewelry Box, I want this gorgeous pair of Kadas sold at Christie’s Geneva Sale last November. I advise to enlarge the picture, the enameled details are stunning. I was thinking of including these beautiful pieces in an Indian Style File but they really deserved their own post. The more I look at them the more I want them…
