Nothing beats jewelry extravanganzas than Bollywood movies! I really enjoyed watching Jodhaa Akbar, an epic movie about Akhbar (1542-1605), the greatest of all the Mughal Emperors of India and the Rajput princess he married. On Netflix of all places, a while ago. The amazing jewelry worn by the actors were real gold and gemstones. See my past post : The Jewelry of an Epic Bollywood Movie.
