Dive into the beauty of Pearls
Pearl diving in Bahrain was first mentioned in Assyrian texts dating to 2000 BC, referring to fish eyes from Dilmun (the ancient name of Bahrain). Pearling flourished from the 1850s to 1930, with more than 30,000 pearl divers as it was the principal industry in Bahrain prior to the discovery of oil in 1932.
What makes Bahraini pearls so unique and lustrous is the sea’s freshwater springs, combined with a certain warmth and high salinity. Coveted for millennia, Bahrain’s precious pearls can still be found today in the oyster banks surrounding nearby islands and, more closely, in stores, encapsulated by gorgeous jewelery.
The Bahrain Pearling Trail or Bahrain Pearling Pathway is a cultural heritage site inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2012, second after the Bahrain Fort.
Shine like the timeless Gold
For years, Gold is considered an eternal piece of ornament and it has been celebrated particularly in the Kingdom for years. The Gold Souq was the original location for trade in jewels and gems in Manama which has now extended to many other shopping plazas dedicated to the design, creation and sale of unique pieces of jewelry. The impeccable craftsmanship of each piece is a vision in itself which makes Bahrain every jewelry lover’s paradise
