I love to admire and get inspired by beautiful jewellery and this book does not let me down. It is full of photographs of amazing collection of Indian Jewelled Arts, for example: engraved gold-backed jewels, relief-carved ornament and inscribed royal gemstones.

From this book, I get to know unique stone setting technique which it claims never been practised anywhere except in India. This technique is called the kundan setting.
Some information regarding the kundan technique that can be found in Wikipedia:

And I just knew that there was “Treasury of the World: Jewelled Arts of India in the Age of the Mughals” (yes, exactly the same as the book title) exhibition in Asian Civilisations Museums Singapore in 2010. Sigh... I wish I knew about it then :(
