Jewelry Museum
Tehran

This is one of the museums that really live up to the hype. Inside, one will find some of the most exquisite and expensive jewels mostly from the Safavid, Qajar and Pahlavi dynasties. This collection is so grand that much of it was transferred to the Central Bank of Iran in the 1930s as a reserve for the country’s currency. Some of the most interesting exhibits include Fath Ali Shah’s Kiani crown, the world’s largest pink diamond (known as the Darya-e Nur, or “Sea of Light) and Nasser al-Din’s Globe of Jewels, made from over 50,000 precious stones.
