Intro
This brief article is part of a comprehensive research in which I’ve investigated the social and cultural contexts of jewelry in Islamic period of Iran. In that long article, I also followed adornments’ formal variations and conceptual diversities in available samples, and analyzed their designs, materials and production methods. This study seeks to illuminate potential cross-cultural influences and impacts that enriched Iranian jewelry throughout history.

The primary purpose of this writing is to document and preserve an extensive source of knowledge and inspiration, both in the technical and formal aspects. This will benefit future generations, as well as young jewelry designers.
