green glass chandelier The Great Maharajahs Of India
When the Mughal dynasty, which ruled India for more than 300 years, slowly disintegrated, landlords, vassal, ministers, and kings who signed peace treaties with them gradually began to claim that the land was their own, and declare himself as "Rajahs" or King.At that time, the British Empire also tried to gain a foothold through their trading arm, East India.These Rajahs either go to war or are the protectors of the company and dominate the vast wealth and natural resources of the land in subsequent battles.Rajahs, who signed the treaty with the company, was largely left to collect taxes and collect income independently.The land owners of these protectors' countries, sometimes as big as England, claim to be "princes" or emperors on their land.In due course, these princes became very rich and powerful and recognized by Britain, other countries and the whole world as sovereign rulers of their kingdom.Wealth comes with wealth, grandeur, willfulness and decadence.Most of these princes live a decadent lifestyle, spending huge sums imitating Europeans and making them friends, internal colleagues, or advisers.Sometimes, as historians have recorded, their depravity is close to oddity.However, with the call of wealth, they also became sponsors of European and Indian art, which led to the display of magnificent objects and paintings in their palaces and royal residences, show their identity, power and royal heritage."Gorgeous Wang Gong...Bao Shilong arrived on 1927, accompanied by 40 servants wearing pink headscarves, girls who like to dance in the month, and most importantly, the six-time box is filled with 7571 diamonds, 1432 emeralds, sapphire, ruby and stunning pearls.This is the wealth and glory of Wang Gong!The following is a tribute to the wealthy and extraordinary culture of the few princes, at least more famous among them, through the jewelry and decorations they decorate.Gong Ba Singh, King of batyala, was born on 1891.From 1900 to 1938, he was the ruler of pattiara.He served as honorary lieutenant general of the British Empire in World War I and as prime minister of the Indian prince's Association.He is the first person in India to have a plane, and he is also an enthusiastic athlete and an avid enthusiast of cricket.He is the captain of the Indian cricket team who visited Britain in 1911.He is very colorful. he has been married ten times and has many concubines.He is famous for his luxury.This pattiara necklace was crafted by Cartier jewelry and decorated by the Prince during his appointment.The necklace weighs 1000 and was made by Cartier in 1928.It has five rows of diamonds.The famous diamond De Beers is a yellow diamond weighing nearly 235, inlaid with platinum chains and cores.There are also seven other 18 to 73 karat diamonds and some Burmese rubies.About 1948, the necklace disappeared again at an auction in Geneva in 1982.Sold $3.Then 16 millionThen in 1998, the second time.Although Ruby and 18 to 73 karat of diamonds are still missing, the hand jewelry store in London has found the missing part of the necklace.Cartier bought the necklace, and four years later it fixed it with copies of zirconium and synthetic diamonds and diamond De Beers.Mahalajja jamsahib, Ranjithsinhji in Navana, is known for his fascination with jewelry.According to Cartier, his Emerald series "is unparalleled in the world, and if not in quantity, then the quality is certainly unparalleled ".He owns the diamond "Tiger Eye" installed by Cartier on the headscarf in the jewelry house ".Jacques Cartier has made the best color diamond cascade in the world.However, since his death in 1933, two years later, the marhalajans have been unable to wear it.The King of Barrow-da, now Gujarat, was born on 1863.He ruled the country from 1875 to 1939.He is still remembered to be a reformed Wang Gong, but he is also a patron of art.During his reign, Baroda entertained scholars and artists.He also has a rich collection of jewelry, including "Akbar Shah", "Princess Eugenie" and "Star of the South" diamonds.He is also a great patron of classical music.The King of the richest state in southern India.Sir navadi krinaraja Vadia vadiar was born on 1884.He ruled the kingdom from 1894 to 1940.e.Until the year he died.When he died, he was one of the richest men in the world, with an estimated wealth of $56 billion and a price of £ 2010.He is the patron of art and also known as the King of philosophers.He is also a connoisseur of classical Indian music.His collection of jewelry is legendary. among his many pearls, diamonds, Sapphire and rubies, there are some valuables that are still very luxurious.India still has thousands of palaces, a silent testimony to an era.When India gained independence in 1947, about 565 + rajahs, nawabs and maharajahs ruled --Third in the country.Some of them, such as Kashmir and Hyderabad, are larger than Britain and France, but some are no more than 50 miles wide.The colonists also had their faults.As we all know, Mrs. Wellington, the Governor-General of India, as the representative of the British royal family, likes jewelry very much.When she is accompanying her husband, she will visit the harem or Zenana of the palace, which must be given to her if she appreciates any jewelry.Therefore, zenana women wear inferior jewelry to avoid giving away valuable jewelry.Wang Gong, rajahs and nawabs often imitate the European nobles and show good to their rulers.This has caused sculptors, architects and expensive jewelry stores from all over the world to flock to India.The jewellers persuaded the rulers to melt or redesign the treasures suitable for modern times.They have built new palaces that are sometimes Art Deco in their architectural layout, with green marble stairs, granite floors, fountains under the colonnades, or emerge from shellsSometimes these swimming pools get hot in the summer.Maharajah in Bharatpur, northern India, has designed a new plan in which huge ice cubes will be thrown into the pool, and a beautiful girl will sit in a swimming pool that is floating.Like other princes, King Mysore also went shopping crazily in Europe.This is reflected in the way they decorate the palace.They bought a glass chandelier 15 feet wide.They also lit up the Mysore Palace with 50,000 bulbs.Victoria-style tiles and colorful glass accessories are available throughout the palace.Quite a few of the palace's 600 rooms are filled with Tiger, elephant and Panther heads and skins.The udabul Palace in Rajasthan was built in marble, adjacent to the manPichola Lake was made.There are stone elephants, their trunks dipped into the lake, arranged along the stairs leading to the palace.The Palace has its own grade specifications through ankle bracelets.The person with the largest number of bracelets is allowed to approach Ma halaja directly, while after meeting with Ma halaja, fewer people in the hierarchy will go to gro and take risks.Most former princes have converted their palace into a hotel.More popular is in udabul, Jaipur and joutpur in Rajasthan, but there are quite a few other places around India.With the abolition of the Royal Palace, Wang Gong found it more and more difficult to maintain their palace, and transforming them into hotels is a way to restore their rich heritage of the Royal Palace.Today, the king of India is a place to be conquered.Most of them have fallen into relative obscurity, turning to doing business to survive, while quite a few have fallen into extreme poverty.Although some of them have transitioned to modern times, most of them are still trying their best to maintain their image.Most of the historic palaces are now in disrepair or renovated in an unrecognizable way.It is regrettable that the national machinery does not carry out adequate protection to maintain these heritage buildings, which is different from Europe and the rest of the world where heritage preservation is an ongoing process.
