Collection of Persian Jewelry, Met Museum, 12th century BCE - 20th century CE

This collection of largely ethnographic jewelry includes examples from cultures in South America, North America, Europe, Asia, and Africa and dates from the Pre-Columbian period to the twentieth century.

All the jewelry I included in this set are from Persia and are, from my guesses, examples from the very early side of the mentioned time span.
