The background of National Jewels of Iran dates back to Safavid era in which it was decided that national jewels belong to National Treasury of government,i.e., apart from the personal properties of the sovereign.

 Many of the Iranian royal jewels from Safavid, Afshar, Qajar, and Pahlavi dynasties are presented in this museum. 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 precious objects and jewels of this treasury make up 75 percent of Iran’s cover for banknotes.
