The exhibition includes items of gold and platinum, a collection of precious stones and other historical treasuries, Tsars' regalia, the crown of the Russian Empire, Russian and foreign medals, huge gold and platinum bars, giant diamonds and numerous pieces of fine jewellery. The collection was founded by Peter I, who was of the opinion that the most significant precious items should belong to the state, not to the Tsar's family. Originally, the jewels were kept in the Winter Palace and during World War I and were later carried over to the Kremlin. The permanent exhibition in the Kremlin was opened in 1967.

- Orlov Diamond, a nearly 190-carat completely transparent and pure stone that decorates the Imperial gold scepter.
- Shah Diamond, in ancient times known as the Prince’s Stone. This nearly 90-carat perfectly pure crystal can tell its own story thanks to the Arabic inscriptions graved on it.
- Table Portrait Diamond, the largest existing flat stone of 25 carat in the world. Cut in India, it now adorns a massive golden bracelet with the image of an Emperor.
- Ceylonese Sapphire, a magnificent 260-carat deep-blue stone, decorating a 19th-century brooch.
