That's lovely pieces pdas1201. Thank you for posting them.
Here are pictures of Farah Diba with the same jewelleries. She wore it again the year after, at the Versailles Castle to attend the charity Gala organised by the Children Foundation, 08 December 2003 in Versailles. They suits well the style of dresses she wears in Gala dinners :)

Wonderful pictures of Farah Diba, Shan and palaces in Iran, from http://www.worldisround.com/articles/73022/

Few pictures from the above site (and captions for 1st, 3rd and 4th pictures):

1st picture- Coronation of Empress Farah of Iran: The Nader throne in the background is studded with an array of some 53,000 precious gems - mostly rubies, emeralds and diamonds, set in a base of 23k gold.

In 1967 Tehran was the scene of one of the most glittering and pompous coronations of the century, as Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi was crowned to become the "Shahanshah" of Iran. "Shahanshah" is a royal Persian title which has a similar definiton as "emperor" and literally translates to "King of Kings" and dates back some 2500 years ago to the reign of King Cyrus the Great, the first "Shahanshah" of Iran. Queen Farah Diba was on the same day crowned to become "Empress Farah" of Iran, or in Persian; "Shahbaanou" of Iran. Color TV had just made it to the stores, although only the rich could afford it. And lucky were those who could see this glittering event in color, and even luckier were those who could see it in person.


3rd picture- New Year Ceremony - Iran: On "Nowrooz" the ancient Iranian new year, which marks the spring equinox, and begins with the first day of spring, the Shah's of Iran would according to tradition hold an audience at the imperial palace. This tradition dates back to the first Shah of Iran, King Cyrus the Great who ruled Iran some 2500+ years ago. In this audience, dignitaries and religious leaders from all around the world would stand in line for hours, until their turn would come to proceed towards the monarch and offer him their new year greetings. Here we see the Shah and Empress Farah, surrounded by the Imperial government of Iran, posing for their traditional New Years photo following the audience.

4th picture- The Empress wearing a turquoise and diamond tiara and matching earrings. The Empress fancied wearing dresses featuring old Persian patterns of the kind you see in the picture. She wore this outfit for the banquet in honor of President Nixon and his wife during their state visit to Iran.

More from http://www.worldisround.com/articles/73022/

1- Coronation of Empress Farah of Iran: The cape worn by Empress Farah of Iran, aka as the "Shahbaanou" of Iran, is made of the finest dark-emerald green velvet, and studded with tens of thousands of precious gems - mostly diamonds, emeralds, rubies and pearls. It's 15 meters (49 feet) long and lined with white mink. The Imperial coat of arms of the Pahlavi Dynasty on the back of the cape is made in meticulous detail of gold and precious gems, and below it runs a an intricate pattern of Persian paisleys several meters long, also made up of diamonds, emeralds, rubies and pearls.

Empress Farah Diba's Crown

Caption: Empress Farah Diba was the first woman in the 25 centuries of Persian history to be crowned empress. The shah himself put the crown on her head of gratitude to her contribution at the progression of Iran, especially her effort to improve the position of women. This all happened on 27. October 1967 in the imperial Palace of Teheran. Farah herself chose the design of this crown, which was made by the jewellers Van Cleef & Arpels form Paris. In the crown are the national colours of Iran; red, white and green. Although the crown is only 1600 grams (it had to be worn by a woman!), this piece of art consists of 1469 diamonds, 36 emeralds, 36 spinels (gems) and 105 pearls. The big six-angular emerald is 150 carat.

After the fall of the empire Farah had to leave this crown in Iran. In 1983 the Khomeiny-regime needed money, so they sold this piece to an English auction house.


Does someone know if the last information of the above caption is true? Thanks

Empress Farah Diba's Emerald Tiara

Caption: In the Middle-East the marriage of a sovereign is a welcome occasion to have made a precious female jewel and Iran is no exeption! His Majesty Shah Mohammed Reze chose for his bride Farah this extraordinary beautiful wedding gift.


This tiara was designed by Harry Winston, the New York jeweller, and it was considered to be Farah's favorite tiara, since she was often seen wearing it on formal occasions.
There are seven large emeralds who are in total 219 cts (the largest one is 65 cts!) framed by diamonds on top of the tiara.
