They include Darya-ye Noor Diamond, Jogheh Naderi (Naderi Paisley), Farah Pahlavi’s Crown, Kiani Crown, Javaherneshan Globe , Sun Throne, and Naderi Throne. Iranian Crown Jewels are so artistically, historically, and uniquely important that even the most skillful experts and evaluators of the world have failed to determine its real or approximate value.

The ownership of Persia treasury was not clearly distinguished before the Safavid Dynasty. Nevertheless, for the time being, the government has collected and recorded them all in National Jewelry Museum. The current treasury contains valuable objects from Safavid, Qajar, and Pahlavi Dynasties. Safavid businessmen and trade experts have brought some of these precious items from India, Ottoman, France, and Italy to Isfahan, the capital city. Over the years, kings of Persia gave some of this jewelry to other nations as presents. Sometimes, they have gained as war trophies. Finally, In 1955 the current treasury was built and four years later it became the Central Bank of Iran property.
