INTRODUCTION TO IRAN
Iran, also known as Persia and officially known as Islamic Republic of Iran, found in Western Asia with over 81 million inhabitants and 18th most populous country in the world. The most attractive thing in Iran is their royal jewels collection which has been found on the vaults of Central Bank of Iran in Tehran, which is the most appealing tourist attraction. It possesses extraordinary treasure and royal jewels having most dazzling and valuable royal collection in the world. The royal crown would capture all your attention as it possess elaborated crowns, thirty tiaras, dozens of bejeweled swords and shields, precious gems, numerous aigrette, precious metals and emeralds which was worn by the monarch of Persia in 16th century.
I have taken inspiration from Iranian jewelry because it attracts me the most as it represent country’s beauty and royalty. Also, it symbolizes their wealth and love for the jewelry. They had a special affection for diamonds, emeralds and other gemstones, because of their religious beliefs, women in ancient Persia did not show their skin or body in public, so they opted to save their favorite jewelry for events that took place at home, such as family gatherings. The artisans were very talented and well trained. They were mastered in producing delicate and intricate jewelry.
