The Royal Jewelry Museum hosts the most valuable jewelry and other stuff that the queens and princesses of the last royal family of Egypt wore for an extensive period of time.
Most jewelries in the Royal Jewelry Museum date back to the ruling period. According to the Egyptian Museums website, Khedive Ismail, Mohamed Ali’s grandson, hired the most skillful Egyptian and foreign artists to create the royal family’s jewelry.
After the Egyptian revolution of 1952, all the pieces were seized and kept in governmental stores for a long time. But as an appreciation for the historical and artistic value of the royal jewelry, the General Administration of Expropriated Money took the initiative to establish a museum qualified to host these pieces.
The Royal Jewelry Museum also displays the collection that dates back to the ruling period of Said Pasha, including varied golden pieces such as golden clocks and watches. The collection also includes many coins that date back to various eras, such as Roman, Persian, Byzantine and Coptic coins.
