Made for a Maharaj

The Victoria and Albert Museum in New York recently held an exhibition- "Maharaja: The Splendour of India's Royal Courts," which focused on the princes of India during the British rule. Since the Indian princes were deprived of their ruling, they were more focused on the attractive things in life. This exhibition showcased jewelery and clothing that was worn by the Royals during this time. Below are a few pictures of the beautiful designs!
