'Eye of Chintz' Mihrab Necklace
Regal exclusivity with a rebellious streak where Versailles meets Mughlai.
Deriving from the floral decorations exhibited by opulent Mughal art, this pendant’s textile-inspired style encapsulates a world-wide 17th century fashion phenomenon in a single timeless locket. True chintz was highly popular during the late 1600s, when European trading of the fabric was banned due to the inability to replicate designs within Europe. With these rich representations of natural beauty restricted, the pattern grew a secret dynasty held by the storied and lawless Court of Versailles, where it was still worn by fashionable young courtiers. This Chintz Dynasty lives on in its regal exclusivity with a rebellious streak
