The Museum of Jewelry in Iran has the most interesting collection of ancient jewelry and huge stones. However, you can not see them, and you can’t take pictures of them. Traditionally, Aigrette – men’s jewelry, put on a turban or other headgear in the center, in the middle of the forehead. In fact, this is an analogue of the daily crown to determine the status of the owner. Meanwhile, beautiful Aigrettes, studded with diamonds, rubies and Opals also decorated the turbans of Ottoman sultans or the ceremonial chamfron of their horses. Aigrettes were in use from the 17th century until the late 18th, and again became popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

The Building of the Museum was the residence and office of “Ahmad Qavam” until 1951. Afterwards, the Egyptian Embassy in Tehran took over the building and finally handed it over to the Iranian Commercial Bank.

From 1976, a group of Iranian and Austrian architects refurbished the building and converted it into a museum which was opened on 1989.

As one of the Iranian famous museums, Abguineh museum comprises several halls and workshops and a library. Art works and handicrafts exhibited in this museum include three collections of porcelains, glass works and crystals.
