You´re welcome Duchess

Well all tiaras except the turquoise are part form Iranian Treasury then is normal now all jewels are in Iran. Same happened in Egypt.

I enjoyed both images, and I have always had a soft spot for Farah Diba, since when she was a student in Paris.

That is one sumptuous tiara! I don't know if I like the mix of stones, but it looks absolutely glorious on Farah's fair head. It actually looks like all white diamonds in the black-and-white photos which I like better.

A picture taken on September 19, 2012 in Paris shows a replica of the crown of Iran's Empress Farah Diba displayed during an exhibition devoted to Van Cleef & Arpels at the Arts decoratifs museum in Paris.

I don't know if this has been discussed in this or another thread, but I am wondering since the she and her husband had to leave the country whether some of her jewels belong actually to the Iranian country or whether they are her own.

The state jewels are where they always were, in the vaults of the Central Bank in Tehran. Then as now they are part of the backup of the Iranian currency, rather like gold reserves. Of course today the Iranian currency isn't worth the paper it is printed on but the jewels are still immensely valuable.

She left Iran with her personal jewels, except the turqoise tiara which she left in Iran. Some of her earrings, necklaces... was sold by the Empress.

Just as Salma and NGalitzine said,Farah Dibah only took her personal jewellery with her,the Imperial Crown Jewels are still in Tehran.They are on public display in the National Museum of Iran and Museum of The Treasury of National Iranian Jewels.They are really worth a visit,it is a highly impressive exhibition.Here is a little bit of information about the Persian Crown Jewel Collection:http://www.iranicaonline.org/article...markazi-e-iran-

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: Farah's Seven Emerald Tiara

This has got to be one of the most intriguing and unique tiaras I have ever seen. Though, I really do not like it. I really dislike the pointed base, and I find the mix of the diamonds and the large emeralds too much for my taste. It's just ostentatious. However, I do find the diamonds and emeralds itself just breathtaking. Love the color of those emeralds. Nevertheless, it's an intriguing tiara, but not a favorite of mine.
