Even if you do not intent to buy gold or have no interest whatsoever, the glamour and glitter of this place are worth watching. Souk means a traditional market; the Gold Souk consists of 300 retailers offering a huge selection of Jewellery made from gold, silver, diamonds, and precious metals and stones. Prices are listed for 24 karats, 22 karats, 21 karats and 18 karats in dirhams per gram. Remember the higher the karat, the purer the gold. 24 karat gold is a hundred percent pure. Pieces are sold by weight according to that day’s price with an additional charge for workmanship.
According to estimates, approximately 10 tons of gold is present at any given time in the souk. You must visit the souk and explore unique and exceptional masterpieces of gold spread out throughout the walkway. Gold lined up from aisle to aisle is not something that you will witness every day. A trip to Dubai isn’t complete without a trip to the famous Gold Souk.
