Oyster Shucking Bahrain

A very few know that Bahrain also known as the Island of pearls is the only country that produces world’s finest natural pearls in the region and boasts a rich pearl diving heritage which is about 350 years old. Bahrain economy was mainly dependent on pearl diving and export of pearls until the discovery of oil and gas in the region.

It’s believed that the beauty and brilliance of Bahraini pearls are due to the presence of freshwater springs near oyster beds.

There are various service providers in Bahrain who can take you for pearl diving experience to collect the treasure yourself from the seabed or if you are only looking to try your luck and find some pearls then you can do oyster shucking.

Oyster Shucking is a big craze every year at Jewelry Arabia. This experience is provided by Danat the Bahrain Institute for pearls and gemstones.

One can buy a bag full of Oysters and the experts will open the shells using a distinct tool like a knife in front of you and if you are lucky, you get the beautiful shiny pearls from these shells. The excitement around this whole experience is amazing and worth a try if you are visiting the kingdom of Bahrain.

Some Bahraini fishermen are providing this experience at your doorstep. They will get you a full basket of oysters and you can invite them for your events and private parties to give a taste of Bahraini culture to your guests. The pearls and the beautiful shells make a great souvenir for everyone to keep as it is or make beautiful jewelry pieces out of it.
