Gold Souk Deira
Lively jewelery souk in Deira. (Don't forget to barter) Discuss this article
Gold is serious business in this part of the world, so it’s not surprising that the Gold Souk near the Hyatt Regency is a vibrant centre for gold-loving buyers and sellers. There are plenty of designs to choose from, but if you don’t like the modern and traditional ones on display, it’s not uncommon to ask a vendor to design jewellery for you.
The gold on offer is crafted in India and comes in several shades; the most popular jewellery is 24-carat and orangey in colour, but you can also get 18, 21 and 22 carat. There are very strict laws involving authenticity of gold, so if a shop attendant tells you a piece of jewellery is 24-carat, then it probably is. As well as rings and bracelets, you can get money clips, touristy knick-knacks and even gold tiaras.
