In addition to the usual pieces of jewelry, it should be noted the work of the Iranian artist Bahman Mohasses, considered the Picasso of Iran.
His works are exhibited in museums all over the world and those in circulation are rare because much of the production of Mohasses was destroyed during the Iranian revolution and by the artist himself. Federico Graglia
