Who is Hanut Singh?


Going by the official website of Hanut Singh, he has been involved in jewellery making for the past 10 years. Hanut Singh's created jewellery has been worn by multiple Hollywood stars including Diane von Furstenberg, Mary-Kate Olsen, Wendi Deng Murdoch, Beyoncé, Madonna, Christian Louboutin, etc.  Hanut Singh received no formal training in jewellery making or crafting. However, his training started since he was child. Hanut Singh belongs to Kapurthala royal family of India who astonished the world with their style in the first half of the twentieth century.


Hanut Singh's official website says, "Hanut’s great-grandfather, the Maharaja Jagatjit Singh was a friend of American President Theodore Roosevelt and French statesmen Georges Clemenceau. He toured Europe annually and commissioned any number of exceptional jewels from esteemed French houses. Two of the most well known are the spectacular pagoda style Kapurthala tiara made by Cartier and a Boucheron aigrette. Both pieces were set with eye-popping emeralds from the family’s gem collection. Hanut’s grandparents the Maharaja Kumar Karamjit Singh and Maharani Sita Devi of Kapurthala — also known as the Princess Karam — continued the relationships with the best French jewelers during their frequent visits to Paris in the 1930s. Cartier’s artistic director Jeanne Toussaint created an Indian inspired necklace for the princess with motifs the Maison repeated on designs for decades."


For the unversed, reports suggest that Colonel Maharajah Sir Jagatjit Singh Sahib Bahadur was the last ruling Maharaja of the princely state of Kapurthala during the British Raj in India, from 1877 until his death, in 1949. He was born in an Ahluwalia Sikh family. He received the title of Maharaja in 1911. He learned various languages like Punjabi, English, Hindi, French, Spanish, Italian etc. 


"Hanut’s stunning penthouse apartment in New Delhi is filled with inherited items from his grandparents Café Society days — gifts from their friends including Coco Chanel, dreamy traveling trunks from Louis Vuitton, a glorious Golconda diamond ring his grandfather commissioned for his grandmother from Louis Cartier," the official website further states.
