Which is the best word to use for a collection. As in a jewellery collection. I've looked up the dictionary and found the following:

- bailiú
- cruinniú
- cnuasach
- díolaim

I need to know which one is the best to use in that context.

Thanks in advance,

Antaine

A Antaine, (nó, A Uaithne,) a chara,

Is é 'cnuasach' an focal is fearr liom sa gcás so. Is de bhunús an fhocail 'cnó' é, rud a thug 'cnuas' agus 'cnuasach'.

Ádh mór.

I've seen 'cnuasach ealaín' used for art collection
