National Jewelry Museum - Review
One of the most ancient cities of the world, Tehran exudes a certain opulent charm of its own. And if you wish to see that opulence, you must visit the National Jewellery Treasure that exhibits the most dazzling Crown Jewels of Iran. This treasury is famous for holding Tehran’s most marvellous possessions: the Qajar monarchs’ jewels. These astonishing gemstones and jewellery have been kept in display for public view but very few people can examine them from a close. The treasury is owned by the Central Bank and is one of the prime attractions of the city. Most of its exhibits date back to Safavid times, an age when the shahs travelled through Europe, India and the lands of the Ottoman Empire to snatch their booty. The centre of attraction here is the Darya-ye Nur translated as the Sea of Light, which is a pink diamond weighing 182 carats and claims to be the largest uncut diamond in the world.

National Jewelry Museum, Tehran Reviews
If you visit Tehran and don't go to this place you definitely have missed something. Located at the vault of the central bank of Iran on Ferdowsi street, the treasury of National Jewels is a place which will remain in your mind forever and you would always wish to visit it again. Some of the most valuable items in the world are kept here, the most famous of which is Daryaye Nour and the Golden Globe. The former is the biggest pink diamond in the world with 180 kirats and the latter is a 38kg globe of the world, made with 35kg of gold and 3kg of jewels, which are 50000 pieces in total. Adding to these two priceless items, there are innumerable number of other items, all of which have been decorated with some of the rarest diamonds, rubies, emeralds and other precious stones. The place is open only for two hours from 2-4pm on Sat-Tue and groups of about 10 people are taken in by a guide who gives a thorough explanation of the history of the items on each display.
An excellent collection of jewellery including diamonds, pearls, emeralds, gold, platinum, ... collected over two hundred years or more. A must-see place with lots of gold crowns, clothes, dishes, boxes, weapons, ... decorated with precious gems.
Unequal jewellery collection. Unique in the world. Heavily guarded. But poor management.
So crowded but i can say its the best museum in iran. Beautiful jewelries and nice guides. Its forbidden to take photo and you have to take all of your staffs like your phone in safe box at the entrance.
Absolute must visit. The prized possession, Darya e Noor (sea of lights) will take your breath away. Unfortunately, the museum opens only twice a week and only for two hours in the afternoon. Add to it, you can't take photos of the place. The German embassy opposite the museum has an interesting sight to see. Long queue of Iranians wanting to leave the country.
