Dubai Gold Souk
Make note of the elaborate Arab wedding jewelry pieces displayed in the windows. Gold is the preferred wedding gift in the Arabian world. Gold is sold by weight so if you are interested in making a purchase check the price of gold before leaving your hotel.
Don’t miss the Guinness World Record’s heaviest gold ring, the Najmat Taiba, created by Taiba for Gold and Jewellery Co., LTD. It is contains 5.17 kg of precious stones set on a 58.686 kg 21 carat gold ring. And has a total weight of 63.865 kg. It is displayed in the window of the Damas Jewelry store.
When you have seen enough gold make your way to the Spice souq – best to just ask anyone the way – the natives are friendly and it is just a short walk.
