Hyderabad – the city of pearls got its name from their huge and intense Pearl production and processing and the trading Industry that has been supplying the finest pearls of the whole Pearl industry to India and to the rest of the world for more than 400 years. Most of the people know this, but have you ever wondered how Hyderabad came to be known as the city of pearls.

The History of Hyderabad

The Nizams who ruled Hyderabad for more than 200 years from the 18th to the mid-20th century was the first one to start the trading of pearls over the globe and thus the imperial Pearl trading enjoyed the patronage of the Nizams. The Nizams sourced and traded all varieties of Pearl across the globe especially around the Arabian Gulf, which were mostly bought by the princely states of Hyderabad at pretty high prices. With the arrival of the rarest and the unique Pearl from different parts of the world, attracted thousands of uniquely skilled Craftsmen making Hyderabad a one and only stop for the best quality pearls for several centuries from the 18th century to this day.

From the time of the Nizams and until now, Hyderabad is known as the hub of high class and high variety pearls, housing and running one of the largest numbers of Pearl drilling institutes and centers. Even today, the city of Hyderabad still preserves and excels this unique talent and craftsmanship.
