Inspiration: Many Mughal rulers, such as Akbar, formed alliances with Rajput rulers by marrying their princesses. This influenced the style of jewelry at the time. Rajput (Hindu) jewelry was predominated by figures of Gods and ancient scriptures. Due to the restriction of such figures in Islamic art, floral images gained prominence. Thus began the combination of quaint craftmanship and delicate artistry. Jewelers were hired to create exclusive, elaborate and intricate pieces.
