Jewelry of Mysore Maharaja

First Online: August 15, 1997
Page Last Updated: November 20, 2017

Introduction

My eyes feasted, hands trembled and my heart was overwhelmed with a sense of history as we ran through the jewelry of the former kings of Mysore (Wodeyars). There were precious stones, pearls, emeralds, diamonds and golden jewelry. There were even footwear made with pure gold. Necklaces, pendants, broaches.... each one a masterpiece of craftsmanship. Some were worn by the royal family members when they posed for Raja Ravi Varma's portraits.... Here are a few digitally scanned pictures in memory of the glorious era that has gone by.
