Iran Jewelry Museum, located on Ferdowsi Street in Tehran, just in front of the Turkish embassy is one of Tehran's touristic attraction. The creation of Iran's national treasure goes back to the period of the Safavids, which constituted the Treasury of the Government. The current jewelry store museum was founded in 1955, while this museum was delivered to the central bank of Iran in 1960, after the founding of this important bank in Iran.
During the visit to Iran, it is highly recommended to visit the Iran Jewelry Museum, as one of the highlights of Tehran, to explore and discover more about the history of Iran. Owned by the Central Bank and accessed through its main doors, you can not miss the cavernous vault that houses what is commonly known as the "Museum of Jewels". The Safavid, Qajar and Pahlavi monarchs were adorned with their belongings with an amazing range of invaluable gems and precious metals, which makes this collection literally amazing. The star pieces include the Globe of Jewels and the Peacock Throne. The Treasure of Iran Jewelry Museum contains the most precious jewelery collection in the world. The real value of the treasure is unknown.
A part of the treasure, which was recovered from India, was damaged or disappeared on the way back to Iran. As was customary at that time, after returning to Iran, Nadir Shah presented some of the jewels to the neighboring kingdoms such as the Ottoman Emperor Sultan Mahmoud, Queen Elizabeth and the ruler of Bukhara Abolfeiz Khan. Some of the gems and jewels were also presented in the sacred shrine of the eighth of the Shia Muslims, the Imam Reza, and the distribution among his army.
an important part of the real treasury was transferred to the National Bank of Iran to strengthen the financial power of the bank and also to be lent as a support of the monetary system. In January 1960, during the reign of Mohammad Reza Shah, the collection was transferred to the Central Bank. After the Islamic revolution in 1979, the royal collection of the Pahlavi dynasty, as well as some other pieces, is in the treasury of the Central Bank. Since then, it has been named the Treasure of National Jewels of Iran.
The National Jewelry Museum of Iran has become part of the collection of valuable jewels and stones from around the world embracing the royal jewels of Safavid, the Afshar dynasty, the Qajar dynasty and the Pahlavi dynasty.
Although this museum is covering a lot of valuable jewels and stones and the whole is a merit, but it is the best known of the items below:
-The Imperial Collection

-The Noor-ol-Ain Tiara
