Iran National Jewels Museum
Iran has a museum called The Treasury of National Jewels (Persian: خزانه جواهرات ملی). After being hidden from view for several years, it was reopened to the public in 1992. It serves as the legal keeper of the Iranian National Jewels and is associated with the Central Bank of Iran. The collection became so expensive in the 1930s that it was used as a reserve for Iranian currency. It is now regarded as one of the most famous collections of diamonds and other jewels in the entire world. Financial Tribune states that “it would not be able to value the collection.”

The Persian kings from the 16th century (Safavid Persia) and onwards collected or wore various items, including unset precious gems, numerous plates and other dining services cast in precious metals and encrusted with gems, and several other more unusual items (such as a large golden globe with the oceans made of emeralds). The Treasury of National Jewels, housed inside the Central Bank of Iran on Ferdowsi Avenue in Tehran, is where the collection is kept.
