The Hyderabad Connection
Nizams of Hyderabad, rulers of the princely state of Hyderabad from 1724 to 1948, were the patrons of exquisite pearls and encouraged the traders to settle down in their city. Nizams had a great taste for jewelry, gems, and precious stones. Hyderabad became the favorite destination for pearls, and pearl jewelry became an important component of the culture of Hyderabad. Hyderabad was called as the ‘City of Pearls and continues to be so. There were brilliant craftsmen who were brought from all over the world, and have created designs, which are famous for their unparalleled purity. The business is primarily attributed to the tourists. The buyers here prefer quality, exclusivity and rarity of the gemstones.
