Dubai is highly regarded as one of the luxury accessory hotspots in the entire world. For our beloved overseas Filipino workers or Expats, women in particular, they can purchase them in a manner that it can serve as a little reward for their hard works of their everyday duties in their workplace.
Buying jewelry in Dubai isn’t like buying from a high street retailer in the UK like Goldsmiths where the stores across the UK will stock thousands of the exact same ring or pendant. Considering it as an attraction, they thought it is a fashion accessory that can be an investment piece in the long run as well.
The prices of real gold pieces are steadily increases throughout the years which results into an interest to many for a potential venture of investment.
Is it Good Idea to Invest in Gold?
Investing in gold, by nature in itself, is good since its inception and through different surges in terms of price. It is considered as highly valuable material for several purposes and one of which is in the form of gold jewelry. Alternative investments are also available and one of them is this.
Should you ask yourself the question, “Where to buy gold?”, or maybe the typical, “Which shops can sell gold near me?”, there are several shops in Dubai for our OFWs to have access and purchase their wanted gold jewelries.
There are two places in Dubai to buy jewelry-the old and more traditional Gold Souk which is in the older part of Dubai and is winding streets of jewelers and definitely worth a visit just for the experience/ambiance and then the newer more modern Gold And Diamond Park which is a small standalone jewelry ‘mall’ close to the Mall of the Emirates. If you’re in Dubai taxi drivers will know both.
Your anticipated best place to buy gold may be one of the following:
This traditional Gold Bazaar reminds me of the early movies of the middle /far east showing bustling market places. The amount of gold and silver sold here is beyond comprehension for Foreigners! There are good value stores down the narrow adjoining alleyways but be very careful when you shop to ensure products have correct registration stamps and are authentic.
The Gold Souk, where row upon row of shop windows are filled with gold, platinum and diamonds. Hundreds of stores sell everything from tiny precious stones and pearls, to heavy golden bracelets and necklaces. Most of the jewelry is between 21 and 24 carat, and nothing is less than 18 carat.
The travel to gold souk was through a ferry and the ferry ride was refreshing in the scorching heat of Dubai. It is mainly a street with lots of gold shops. A great place to shop gold, mostly seen Indian jewelers there. Also you can buy souvenirs from this place.
Be ready to walk and lot in the crowd and also keep yourselves hydrated. Not recommended if you have a very small baby with you and not interested in gold, this cab be skipped. The place is mesmerizing.
The make and design are beautiful and sometimes even surprise you. Mostly you will see tourist and Indian people in this gold market. But it’s a lifetime opportunity to visit once and see the market.
