Just as a two-month exhibition of Nizams’ jewellery ended in New Delhi, globally-renowned auction house Christie’s is set to put under hammer some 400 pieces of rare jewels. This includes a few items from the ‘fabulous’ treasure house of the Nizam. So famous was his collection, that the last ruler of Hyderabad was also known as ‘The Fabulous Mughal’. The auction is set to take place on June 19 in New York. While a collection of 173 pieces of jewellery of the Nizams, now owned by the government of India, are put on display once in a while in the country, there are said to be hundreds of other jewels in possession of either family members or have been sold to collectors, connoisseurs and businessmen across the world.
