The pair are priced at £16,000 and form part of the gallery’s showcase of wearable jewels in original condition from Asia dating from the 5th century through to the 19th century.

The show is a collaboration with antiques arms and armour specialist Runjeet Singh in St James’s (October 21-November 5) and is part of Asian Art in London.
