Collectibles (Special Focus)

In the past, maharajas, royal families, and landlords lived opulent lives and loved to surround themselves with beautiful objects - commonly called 'collectibles'. These collectibles were often their pride and joy and were proudly displayed for their aesthetic and monetary value. These collections have included vintage cars, gems and jewellery, paintings and sculptures, and curios. Snap to the present and the zest for collectibles is equally visible in ultra-HNIs' collections. Ultra HNIs have varied tastes - from the quaintest of objects to the most stunning, ostentatious jewels.

These collectibles not only define their quest for luxury and power, but also their desire to be exclusive and distinct. This section explores the drivers for collectibles, various categories within this segment, and their purchasing trends.
