India: A Jewelry Spectrum was the first comprehensive exhibition in New York devoted exclusively to the jewelry of India.

The exhibition was organized around three sections: tribal and amuletic jewelry, rural jewelry, and gold and gemstone jewelry. Photographs throughout the exhibition illustrated the ways of wearing different pieces, as well as the relationship of jewelry in India to the ritual and secular events in which they are used.

Drawn from public and private collections in Holland, Belgium, Finland, Switzerland, and the United States, the exhibition featured 250 objects surveying a range of jewelry forms, designs, and materials. On view at Bard Graduate Center from October 8, 1998–January 31, 1999, the exhibition was curated by Oppi Untracht.
