For the first time in Italy, Museum of Bijou in Casalmaggiore in the province of Cremona, is to display a selection of jewelry and archaeological pearls from the region of ancient Mesopotamia from November 25.

Contemporary jewelry made by prominent Iranian designers based on Islamic and Iranian traditions are among the items on display.

Part of the museum is dedicated to an interesting selection of fancy jewels made by distinguished Italian jewelry designers from the 1960s to 2000, who were inspired by Persian calligraphy and poetry, Honaronline reported.

The exhibition is accompanied by a series of unpublished pictures depicting Iran’s nature, art, and society taken by the 58-year-old Italian photographer Federico Wilhelm.

“Works reveal the beauty of Iranian culture, focusing on the jewelry world and its many fascinating dimensions,” the museum’s website says. The artworks will remain on show until January 28.
