London-based jewellers Phillips Brothers & Sons admired Indian enamelling and gem setting, and created jewellery inspired by the techniques of the subcontinent. Here they have encased the diamonds to preserve the original kundan setting. The red and green enamelled ornaments represent an attempt by the jeweller to emulate Indian enamel work.
