Featuring the fabulous and unique collection of XIXth and XXth century Indian gold jewels of the Musee Barbier-Mueller in Geneva, it retraces a legacy going back 5000 years. Intricate carving, exquisite repousse work, fine design and the depiction of myths and legends on a minutely detailed scale are the hallmarks of the jewelry of south India, showcased here for the first time in all its splendor.

A stereotypical view of the nineteenth-century British in India, which might be characterised as one of deliberate isolation and segregation from their surroundings, has recently been complemented by one evoking a high degree of integration and closer co-existence in the eighteenth century. Focusing on a period which straddles this apparent shift, this book explores a variety of ways in which British residents in India represented their lives through visual material, and reveals a more nuanced position. Consideration of these images, which have often been overlooked in the scholarly literature, opens up questions of identity facing the British population in India at this time and facing colonial societies more generally, and issues about the role of visual culture in negotiating them. It also underlines the fragile and contested nature of identity: the colonists’ self-fashioning encompassed not only expressions of difference from their Indian setting, but also what distinguished them from their compatriots back in Britain, as well as engaging with metropolitan attitudes towards, and prejudices about, them.
Jewelry of this period is much better documented, chiefly as the result of the
systematic documentation of Indian material ... TheJewels ofIndia (Bombay, 1995
