When were the Iranian Crown Jewels transferred from the Royal Treasury to the Treasury of the Central Bank and what were the reasons that prompted such a transfer ?

The Iranian Crown Jewels were first transferred from the Royal Treasury to the National Bank of Iran in November 1937 after a law enacted by the Iranian Parliament, during the rule of Reza Shah Pahlavi the founder of the Pahlavi dynasty.

You have divided the Iranian Crown Jewels into seven categories above. If I am not mistaken you seem to have missed one important category, viz. the Thrones of the Iranian Crown Jewels. There are at least two thrones in the vaults of the Central Bank of Iran, The Naderi Throne and The Sun Throne, also considered as part of the Crown Jewels.Images of the Naderi Throne and Sun Throne are attached below :-
