DescriptionA collection of precious gold and silver coins in the Museum’s collection—some with astrological motifs—was originally minted between 1618 and 1625 by the Mughal emperor Jahangir (r. 1605–27). We have adapted these coins for our distinctive two-strand necklace.

Art HistoryThe Mughal empire (1526–1858) flourished under a long line of dynamic and highly cultured rulers, who supported some of the greatest achievements of Indian art and architecture. Royal support for court painters, architects, weavers, and goldsmiths led to the development of a distinctive and unified Mughal style, which was characterized by a wealth of floral motifs, rich colors, and fine workmanship.
