The National Jewelry Museum of Iran, located in the basement of the Central Bank of Iran, is a unique and precious treasure of the most exquisite jewelry in the world.
The most valuable and most beautiful jewels in this museum are the Darya Noor Diamond (the world’s largest pink diamond), Noor-ul-Ain Diamond, Kiani Crown, Naderi Throne, Tavoos Throne, Jewel sphere, yellow, black, and red diamonds, the world’s largest spinel gemstone, etc.
We went to this museum after visiting Tehran Grand Bazaar; they are almost near to each other.

Important tips:
It is better to be accompanied by an experienced guide to get the most out of your visit (there are some step-on guides at the museum).
The National Jewelry Museum of Iran welcomes visitors only on Saturdays to Tuesdays from 14:00 to 17:00.
Children under 12 years old are not permitted to visit this museum.
Since this place has many stairs, no elevator, and no escalator, it is difficult to visit for people with physical disabilities.
Bringing any items other than the manual is prohibited, and visitors are required to hand over all their personal belongings to the museum safe before entering.
Photography is prohibited at the National Jewelry Museum of Iran. That is a pity.

This was my third time visiting this museum since I was a teenager, now with my 12 years old son. There are unique pieces of jewelry to see including the biggest pink diamond. Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus crisis, there were some restrictions, including 20 minutes total visiting time limit. The guides are now just answering questions instead accompanying the visitors as they usually do. But the written brochure was good enough to understand the important items. If you have an option to visit it after coronavirus crisis, better to wait to get the most of your visit.

The worst thing, is that you cant take pictures. Even if we could, no camera can possibly capture the beauty of this museum. Lots of crowns and amazing jewlery, plus I really loved the giant golden jewel-engraved globe,and Takhte Tavoos (The Peacock Throne)
