The arrival of Pearls in Hyderabad:
Let's talk about how Hyderabad became a hub for Pearl business. The presence of pearls increased during the time of Qutub Shahi kings, while they announced their patronage with Asaf Jahi's, who always had a knack for pearls. So, dating back to the lavish lifestyles of Nizams, they always had an eye for craftsmanship in jewellery. Taking this as a cue to make some penny, merchants from across India made their way to the city. This event made Hyderabad a pearl city of India. In addition to their beauty, pearls are also crushed and powdered for their healing and beautifying traits.
