Christies New York is set to auction off over 400 pieces of jewellery, objects and gemstones from the famed Al Thani collection.
Set to take place on June 19, the pieces are part of the Maharajas & Mughal Magnificence sale and represent Indian craftsmanship from the Mughal emperors who ruled India for more than three centuries to today’s masterpieces.

Some of the more significant creations include diamond and emerald necklace from the 19th Century and ruby, diamond and pearl choker by Cartier that was commissioned by Maharaja Bhupinder Singh of Patiala in 1931.
The Golconda mine in India is considered the earliest diamond mine known to man and produced the 52.58 carat rectangular-cut diamond named The Mirror of Paradise that previously sold at auction for $10.9 million.
Before arriving in New York, the collection will go on tour Shanghai, Geneva and Hong Kong.
We expect record breaking sales.
