There is no precise information on the quality and quantity of jewelery treasures before the Safavid era, and it can be said that the history of Iranian jewelery dates back to the Safavid dynasty. How the current collection is assembled and produced can be summarized as follows: Before the Safavids, there were items of jewelry in the state treasury, and according to the writings of foreign travelers (Jean Baptiste Tavernier, the Knights of Chardin, the Shirley brothers, Warnig, and others), the Safavid kings began to collect around the turn of the century (907 to 1148 AD). Nafs and gems have even been bought by experts in the Safavid government from Indian, Ottoman and European markets such as France and Italy and brought to Isfahan, the state capital. Thus, at the end of King Sultan Hussein's reign, with the arrival of Mahmoud Afghan into Iran, the government's coffers were scattered by Afghan invaders, some of which had been transferred to Afghan Ashraf by Mahmoud Afghan, following the arrival of King Tahmasb II with Nader to Isfahan. , Was caught rare and was prevented from leaving Iran. Nader later wrote letters to the Indian court to retrieve the piece of jewelery he had traveled to India, but he heard a poor response. After a rare expedition to India (1158 AH), Mohammed Shah surrendered cash, jewelry and weapons. Some of the rare wealth and treasures he had acquired from India did not reach Iran and disappeared on his way back to Iran. Upon returning to Iran, Nader sent a considerable amount of jewelry and jewelry to the neighboring rulers and rulers in the name of Armagh. He also donated some exquisite objects to Imam Reza's doorstep and distributed some among his corps.
Until the Safavid era, the kings of Iran had not collected, preserved, or preserved jewelry and ornaments. During the Safavid era, kings purchased and collected and preserved existing jewelry by traveling to neighboring countries. After the Afghan invasion of Iran, some of these jewels were shipped to Afghanistan, with much of the rare effort returned to Iran. King Nader sent several letters to the King of India to retrieve some of the jewelry sent to India, but with no response he went to India. Nader's campaign led Nader to donate many gifts and jewelry to Nader. Many of the rare gifts and trophies collected from India never came to Iran. After returning to Iran, Nader gave part of the spoils and gifts to the rulers, emperors and kings of the countries and territories around Iran, giving some of the spoils to the threshold of Quds Razavi and another part to the troops. Following the assassination of Nader Shah, one of his commanders, Ahmed Big Afghan Abdali, looted treasury jewelry, and some of these jewelry, including the Diamond Mount Nour, which was later (probably forced) donated to the British Queen, was never returned to Iran.
