The primal urge to embellish oneself is a human instinct which has been the driving force in jewelry history for over 70000 years, and the bond between jewelry and humans cannot be broken.  The 5000 items that form the collection of the World Jewellery Museum in Seoul, South Korea are about the invention of tradition as much as tradition itself.  Elaine Kim, Deputy Director at the WJM Museum, presented select items from the collection and investigated the role tradition plays in the subject of cultural identity.

June 13, 2013In 1995, after decades of legal wrangling, the Government of India purchased a priceless jewelry collection from the last Nizam of Hyderabad, the world’s richest man at one time. Ruling over a state roughly the size of France, his wealth was said to have been able to feed the world for a period of eight days. The jewels examined over the course of the lecture represented a fraction of the legendary wealth belonging to the Asaf Jah dynasty, said to be descendants of the last Ottoman caliphate. Among the highlights visited was the 184.50 carat Jacob diamond, a D-color Golconda diamond the size of a baby’s fist, that he used as a paperweight.  Lecturer Reema Keswani brought to life one of the most fabled jewelry collections in the world, offering a window into the glittering world of Maharajahs’ jewels.
