Pearl Jewellery of Hyderabad

As Ram Dutt Malji, became the royal jeweller, his son Seth Kedarnathji Motiwale, opened the first ever pearl rims in Patthargatti in 1902. Though started with pearls from the Persian Gulf, the trade began to flourish with Indian pearls. 

 Even today, there is a village called Chandapet, just outside the city, fully dedicated to the art of drilling pearls, the 'Queen of Pearls'.

Types of Pearls   

Pearls generally are of two types: Real and Cultured. Once the pearls are extracted, they are segregated according to their shapes, and then drilled either horizontally or vertically by skilled artisans. 

Once the drilling is done, pearls are graded according to their sheen, shape, glaze, lustre, size and uniformity. The color of a pearl is determined by observation under ultraviolet light.
