What is it?
Comprising over 379 retailers dealing with the creme de la creme of gold, silver, jewels and everything shiny, Gold Souk Dubai in Deira is a household name. It has been around for over 100 years and holds approximately 10 tonnes of gold at any given point of time. This shopping hub is known to offer the best deals on jewelry and caters to both local and international tastes.
What’s in it?
The world’s largest gold ring, Najma Taiba, weighing a colossal 64 kgs is housed here. This jaw-dropping beauty is worth AED 2.2 million and took 45 workers almost 2 months to manufacture.

From crowns to body-suits to anklets, the stores here can cover you in gold from head to toe, if that’s your thing.
