Known to be some of the most expensive jewels of India, Hyderabad jewellery first belonged to the Nizams, according to historians. Made up of gold and silver, they are decorated with fine enamelling work to bring out the sheen of the metal. As legend has it, the Nizams sold these exotic jewels to the Government of India at a very low price as they couldn’t pay tax. While the Government tried to buy the Hyderabad jewellery for 25 million bucks, the Supreme Court agreed to 65 million, far, far less its real worth, which is 350 million!

Let’s have a look at the different types and designs of Hyderabad jewellery that most Hyderabadi brides don on their weddings.

1. Jada Huwa Lachcha

Embellished with uncut diamonds, pearls, stones and gems, the Jada Huwa Lachacha is an antique Hyderabad jewellery necklace that can beat any other type of jewels. A choker style in design, its green gemstones are the icing on the cake with the intricate work of Hyderabadi pearls decked on the top and in between the necklace.

Instead of green, there can be red or maroon gemstones as well, with the same kind of designing and pearls. Pick the colour that matches with your lehenga the most!

2. Sat Lada

Another type of necklace - but extremely different from a choker -  is the Sat Lada, one of the most popular forms of Hyderabad jewellery. Consisting of seven strands and embellished with pearls of Hyderabad, this necklace is made especially for a bride and starts from the neck and goes on and on to end at the navel!

Each strand of these glowing pearls has a pendant made up of gold and gemstones. This is a look that is perfect for brides who want a very regal vibe.

3. Teeka and Jhoomar

The Teeka, also known as the Maang Tikka, is worn in the middle parting of the forehead to adorn and brighten it. This ornament is typically made up of gold and embellished with exotic pearls and gemstones. Given by her maternal relatives, this jewellery piece holds great value for the bride as the Teeka is a symbol of their blessings.

Apart from that, the Jhoomar or Pasa is another popular type of Hyderabad jewellery and is designed with pearls and gold in a triangular shape. It is often embellished with red stones too. Unlike the Maang Tikka, the bride has to wear this ornament on the left side of her forehead.

4. Nath

A bride in Hyderabad usually gets her nose pierced just before her wedding day. A symbol of her purity, she is made to wear a gold nose ring with a ruby bead and two pearls. A custom in Hyderabad, it is one if the bridal Hyderabad jewellery pieces that are considered a must for the bride. After looking extravagant in her Nath design, she can remove it later on once the wedding is over.

5. Karan Phool and Chandbali
