The art of jewellery in India owes for its sublime development and nourishment much to the patronage of royalty. The luxury and splendour with gold and precious stones in the courts of Indian kings are proverbial.

Ornaments that would make any woman happy to possess are painted on a staid ochre background. Jewellery has been a woman's best friend and every part of a female anatomy has an ornament to beautify with the head ornament that decorates her hair; one that falls gracefully over her forehead; the nose ring, the earrings, and as we go down, we see her hands with rings, bracelets, armlets; not to forget the necklaces that beautify her swan-like shapely neck. The feet that fall obligingly on the ground have toe-rings and anklets. All the above-mentioned jewellery items are painted, scattered on the pictorial space. Amidst all this richness is painted a Rajput king, mustachioed, wearing a stylized turban, himself laden with jewellery. A semi-circular strong line captures the image of the king, stops just short of disturbing the ornamental' beauty of the painting.
