Offering anything from affordable imported bangles and chains, to locally made 22-carat bridal jewellery sets worth a small fortune, Gold Souq comes alive later in the evenings, especially before a public holiday when local men typically buy the lady in their life something special to express the value of their relationship.
The unique thing about Gold Souq is that all gold and precious gems are weighed in front of the buyer and have all been tested and hallmarked, guaranteeing the purity and value.
