A Gem of a Deal in India

By Linda Tancs

Maharajas from all over India commissioned the proprietors of Gem Palace in
Jaipur to make jewelry and other precious objects.  Now over 150 years’ strong, India’s version of Harry Winston puts a contemporary flair on traditional Indian design.  Their creations have been exhibited twice at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.  Too rich for you?  You be the judge.
