Lot Essay

Maharaja Vibhaji II Ranmalji ruled the Indian princely state of Nawanagar, now known as Jamnagar, from February of 1852 until his death in April 1895. Nawanagar gained much of its wealth from a famous pearl fishery. The Maharajas of Nawanagar were known for their magnificent jewelry collection. Jacques Cartier noted the collection was, “unequaled in the world, if not in quantity, then certainly in quality.”
