    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.

  14. ^I love burmese rubies! it's wonderful to hear that Kerala has such historical respect for women.

    ^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.

    ^how beautiful! she looks lovely in that vivid shade of green.
