Here is a necklace in diamonds and emeralds designed by Boucheron for the Maharajah of Patiala. In 1928, the king walked into Boucheron's Place Vendome flagship with 7,571 diamonds, 1,432 emeralds, and countless other precious stones, to commission 149 jewellery pieces in a single day.

Till today, this has been the most incredible order ever placed at Boucheron.

The Patyala necklace is considered as the most most spectacular piece of platinum jewellery ever created. It took Cartier almost three years to make the original necklace, which looked so exquisite that they sought the Maharaja’s permission to display it before sending it to India.
^that necklace is a work of art! I wish we had more pictures (I know you said indian royalty didn't take many pictures). his "crown" is fabulous too.
