The plenitude of gemstones is very characteristic of Indian jewelry. Necklaces adorned with huge and prominent gemstones, some weighing hundreds or even thousands of carats, were crafted by adept silver and goldsmiths. Gems symbolized power and greatness, serving as a symbol of recognition and sometimes even becoming tools that could influence the direction of wars. India was a leading supplier of gems to the world until the 19th century. Precious metals and minerals from the high mountains once encouraged adventurous explorers and traders. The intense trade between India and Afghanistan, Persia, Soviet Asia, Tibet, and Ceylon was also a significant source of the variety of gemstones found in antique pieces.
