Pearl heritage

READ: Is there a new project that will dwarf Burj Khalifa?

The history of pearl diving in the UAE is ancient, with archaeologists finding evidence of this tradition dating back more than 7000 years ago, according to the Culture Trip, a global tech company that addresses culture and creativity.

The pearls of the UAE were one of the most sought-after accessories of the time.

Pearl diving offered seasonal if not full-time work for many local Emiratis, and many UAE families can still trace their fortunes back to the historic pearl diving their forefathers did, the culture trip explained.

Pearl diving was the basis for the founding of cities like Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

The most top-ranking brands began their careers by using UAE pearls for prestige and quality insurance, like Cartier, said the Culture Trip.
