Over the years, Dubai has become an international hub for many commercial activities. Gold, diamonds and jewelry could not be the exception. A lot of tourists combine their vacation with the purchase of a jewelry piece or they opt for some sort of investment in gold bullion, bars and coins or diamonds.
Gold is considered by many civilizations as the primary exchangeable currency, much better than money in the bank. Dubai is the perfect place for people to quench their thirst for precious metals or stones. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of establishments in Dubai that deal with gold, silver, precious and semi-precious stones and jewelry. A visit to the Gold Souk is a must, even if you are not interested in buy anything. Let’s see how long you can resist the temptation of buying gold in a place that you can literally smell and breathe this precious metal. Another place you have to be is the Gold & Diamond Park along Sheikh Zayed Road, right behind First Gulf Bank metro station. Close to one hundred retailers offer their creations at competitive prices or they can take your order for custom-made jewelry creations. All shopping malls, headed by Dubai Mall and the Mall of Emirates, have their gold souk sections where international and local brand names compete side-by-side with many smaller but equally innovative and creative retailers. Finally, you can make your purchases at stores in the lobbies of most of the hotels and at stores located along the busy streets and squares of Deira and Bur Dubai.
Although gold is regulated by Dubai Central Laboratory and all retailers must provide you with the appropriate certificates, it is advisable that you do your homework prior to embarking on a major purchase.
