Drawing on a private New York collection, the book presents around 150 pieces of Indian jewelry, most of it gold, and much of it jeweled. The focus of the collection is jewelry from the south of India, particularly women's jewelry and the jewelry of the gods. The objects are presented within their social contexts - nineteenth- and early twentieth-century photographs show how types of objects were worn or used and by whom - and verses from poetry and the epics will suggest the rich semantic life of these jewels in Indian society.
