Minal Vazirani, co-founder of Saffronart says, “Fine Jewels and Woven Treasures collectively offer a unique window into the philosophy, spirituality and aesthetics of a diverse set of cultures across South Asia, the Middle East and Europe. The jewellery sale features important pieces created around European old cut diamonds, as well as the traditional Indian jewellery techniques of meenakari and thewa seen from the Mughal era to present day. This attention to the details of aesthetics is underscored in the fascinating assemblage of textiles which document rare pieces from northern India, Iran and Central Asia through the collecting journey of the leading textile historian, Jasleen Dhamija.”

Both sales are preceded by viewings in New Delhi and Mumbai.
