City of Gold | Dubai’s Famous Gold Souk

The Dubai Gold Souk is a traditional market (or souk) in Dubai. The souk is one of the oldest and most fascinating traditional markets in the emirate. It is located in the heart of Dubai’s commercial business district in Deira and consists of over 300 retailers that trade almost exclusively in jewelry. Retailers in the souk include both well established stores and smaller stores. Approximately 10 tons of gold is present at any given time in the souk. How unbelievable! There were so many different retailers, each with their own collection of gorgeous gold jewelry. I wanted it all!

The store we chose to stop in was the beautiful Al-Romaizan Gold and Jewellery LLC, Branch 2. The owner, Hussein Al Dhaibani was absolutely wonderful. His customer service was great and he treated us extremely well. Their selection of gold was impeccable! He even dressed me up in just a few of his pieces and to say the least they were stunning. I felt like a literal princess!

After he dressed me up, people started flooding into the store wanting to take pictures with me! I was so surprised, but it was so fun meeting all these new people!

After all of this commotion, my mom and I ended up getting beautiful bracelets from the owner for such a great price. I fell in love with so many pieces it was so hard to choose!

After visiting the Gold Souk, we walked around a bit and decided to stop by the Spice Souk nearby. You could smell the aromatic herbs and spices from all the way down the street! They had an amazingly fresh selection of anything you could possibly want.

 

Anytime I’m looking to buy gold one day (let me get my coins up first!) I will definitely make the Dubai gold souk a priority. The quality and selection is unmatched! I would recommend anyone visit the gold souk, even if they’re not looking to buy any gold items. It’s a wonderful experience seeing one of the greatest treasures of the emirate in person. And make sure to stop by Al-Romaizan while you’re there!
