One of the largest Sikh art collectors Davinder Toor purchased Maharani Jind Kaur’s earrings for $225,000 at a UK auction.

The earrings were expected to go for about $30,000 but after a UK gurdwara brought together a large group, the earrings went for almost ten times the estimated value.

The competition ended up being within the Sikh community and it appeared Davinder was willing to pay any price possible for the precious earrings of the wife of Maharaja Ranjit Singh.

Davinder has announced to publicly display the earrings at a GT 1588 initiative’s upcoming exhibition from July 12 to 23 September at the Brunei Gallery, SOAS, Russell Square.
