Very beautiful prepared museum, each cm is clean and with nice classy decor. All shown pieces very precious and historical. Not only classic jewellery, but also houseware and cosmetic pieces in real gold with beautiful stones.

I won’t drag my husband and son there, but I’m glad that I visited this site with a women’s group. Some of the jewellery pieces are absolutely gorgeous.
