Shopping for bangles in the narrow bazaars of the Old City of Hyderabad is an experience one should not miss.Hyderabad is also known as the "city of pearls". Wide range, price and superior quality are some of the factors, which make the city a true pearls paradise. From cultured pearls to the rare 'Basra', the city has all of them.Jewelers in the pearl markets of Hyderabad have for centuries combined pearls with the glitter of gold, the richness of rubies and the ecstasy of emeralds. It is indeed amazing and heartwarming to see traditional designs still surviving the march of history in the narrow alleys of the Old City today. Several styles of ornaments using pearls evolved along with the pearl trade. The 'Satlada' and 'Panchlada Haar' are seven and five stringed necklaces. They are often interspersed with emeralds or onyx beads set in nine carat gold. Earrings such as 'Karanphool' and 'Cholaphool', set with uncut diamonds and pearls, are also very popular. The Bazaars around the Charmiar are much the same as they were in the pages of history. Here the fragnance of jasmine and the hot spiced kebabs mingle in the air. The Laad Bazaar offers pearls and silver filigree work; jewellery, exoctic or traditional, and gorgeous glass or lacquer bangle sets.
