The National Jewelry Treasury, Tehran

4.6
#2 of 104 in Museums in Iran
Immerse yourself in the world of luxury and splendor at The National Jewelry Treasury, which holds one of the finest collections of jewelry once worn and used by members of Persian royal dynasties. Don't miss the highlights of the collection: the largest uncut pink diamond in the world, the Peacock Throne, and the 1869 globe fully encrusted with precious stones--emeralds for the oceans, rubies for the land, and diamonds for the countries of Iran, Great Britain, and France. Most of the pieces in the collection changed hands many times since the 16th century when Safavid Shahs scavenged Europe, Middle East, and India looking for these exquisite gems. Although diminished from what it once was, the current collection is still so vast and valuable that it serves as a reserve for the Iranian currency, the rial. There are not many English descriptions here, so consider taking a guided tour or buying a guidebook at the museum's store.

  • There’s a good amount of information and history (even life lessons) to learn at this place all while seeing lots of jewelry and national treasures. The guides are very knowledgeable and they speak various languages. This place is great even for the locals. If you are in Tehran, it’s absolutely worth a visit. You can even combine it with a trip to Golestan Palace and Bazaar on the same day.
  • The most incredible museum I've ever visited. There are so many treasure inside the museum with very defensive equipment like very big safes. The price of the ticket so not so expensive and it's worth a visiting But the opening time is not so long and gets crowded very often.
