In this monograph the writer has tried to show how the Greek jewellery motifs were imported into India, which have been discovered in the jewellery found in Taxila and other border towns where Alexander had allowed his soldiers to settle down. Among these soldiers were goldsmiths who just manufactured jewellery on Greek patterns but later influenced by Indian motifs began to mix these with Greek ones. This Indo-Greek jewellery found a ready market among the Indo-Greeks who inhabited these towns. The writer has dealt with the jewellery found under different chapters entitled the jewellery for the head, ears, neck, arms, wrist etc. This analytical thesis is of interest of all Indologists and is specially useful for scholars studying Indian jewellery and ornaments of the first century A.D.
