Kuni Pendant/BroochAP 6001
The floral motif that dominated artwork during the Mughal dynasty was often presented with the precise details that were the specialty of Persian artists. Using the stunning materials of Mughal artisans and the influences of Persian design, the Kuni floral piece— a 2” diameter broach or pendant— represents the pinnacle of Mughal artwork. Finely hand-carved layers of gold-tone brass inlay hold an array of 2.5 carats worth of rose-cut diamonds and 1 carat worth of rubies, all framed by a rich, dark ebony wood. The power and precision of Mughal design is apparent in this beautiful piece.
