What and where are the collections of the worlds best treasure troves?

I want to track down the largest collections of gems, gold and jewellery around the world. Recently I was reading about the Iranian Crown Jewels
and was gobsmacked by the sheer size of both the individual pieces and the sheer amount of it all.
I know about the English Crown Jewels, of course, and those of other countries. I guess there'd be collections of gems within various Natural History museums in the Geological section. Where else can I feast my eyes (online) on other brilliant baubles?
