"This catalogue is the first comprehensive study of the 328 objects that make up this little-known area of the Royal Collection. The ancient gems and intaglios have been catalogued by John Boardman, and although they are few in number, they include the magnificent Claudius cameo that was once in the collection of Charles I. The later, post-Renaissance pieces have been studied by Kirsten Aschengreen Piacenti, and these include the great Tudor portrait cameos, a superb series of Italian sixteenth-century portrait cameos of North Italian 'Beauties', the group of exquisite eighteenth-century Italian carnelians bought by George III from Consul Smith in 1762 and a fine selection of Garter badges, several bearing the signature of the gem-engravers Marchant and Burch." "Close examination by gemmologists has produced an accurate technical analysis of all the stones and settings, and newly commissioned photographs bring out the distinctive features of each piece. Casts are illustrated wherever possible, and close-tip images of signatures, inscriptions and hallmarks support the detailed descriptions in the text. Research into the collection has resulted in new information concerning the mounts of many of the gems, and this is summarised in an illustrated appendix. Also published in full, and for the first time, is the collection of intaglios once owned by Henry, Prince of Wales, which was recorded in a series of wax impressions made by Elias Ashmole at the request of Charles II in June 1660."--BOOK JACKET.

The Nasser D. Khalili Collection contains a magnificent group of jewellery, goldsmith's work, and hardstone carvings produced in Mughal India. This part of the Collection covers the period from the golden age of Mughal power in the seventeenth century to the nineteenth century when Queen Victoria succeeded the last Mughal emperor as ruler of India, and includes jewels owned by the Emperors themselves, luxury objects made for their courtiers and works in the Mughal taste commissioned by the Hindu nobility. It also contains fine South Indian jewellery and precious stones created outside the Mughal cultural orbit. This catalogue, which is by the leading specialist in the fields of Indian decorative arts and painting, and a pioneer authority on Mughal jade, presents the largest corpus of Indian jewellery and precious objects to be published in the twentieth century and places them in their Mughal social context. It is part of the lavishly illustrated 26-volume series which will make the entire Collection available to a wider public.

The volume also includes exclusive essays by industry experts and noted historians that explore the history of the Bulgari family starting with the founder, Sotirio Bulgari, who immigrated to Italy from the Balkans in the late nineteenth century. The family's close relationships with members of the international elite are also examined. Many of the world's most famous women have been Bvlgari clients, including Ingrid Bergman, Sophia Loren, Audrey Hepburn, and Anita Ekberg. Pieces once owned by Elizabeth Taylor are included in the book, and many of the jewels featured have never been previously exhibited.
