The Nizam’s Jewels

The Nizam of Hyderabad’s jewel collection, which once had around 6,000 pieces, is considered one of the finest in the world. But what makes it so amazing?

Take a look at the finest pieces of the Nizam’s jewels with India’s leading jewellery historian and author Dr Usha R Balakrishnan, as she transports us to another era. Dr Balakrishnan has catalogued the Nizam’s jewel collection for the Government of India and she has co-authored the book ‘The Treasures of the Deccan: Jewels of the Nizams’, which documents the collection.
