The Gold Souk of Dubai Deira with hundreds of jewellery shops

Dubai sells more than 300 ton of gold every year. This shows how important this gold souk is. If you know how much gold there is in your wedding ring, you realise they have to sell lots of jewellery and gold bars in this town. The gold is displayed behind the windows, people buy and feel safe. There is almost no crime in Dubai. It gives you a good feeling to know that, although we did not buy any jewellery. Most of the shops look great and the advertisements are classy. In one of the stores, the heaviest gold ring in the world was displayed; it weighs almost 64 kg and contains around 5 kg precious stones. My picture of the ring is poor due to the window reflection but I didn’t want to leave it out of this article.

Dubai verkoopt meer als 300 ton goud per jaar. Dit toont aan hoe belangrijk deze goud soek is. Als je weet hoe weinig goud er in je trouwring zit, besef je dat men hier in deze stad zeer veel juwelen en goudstaafjes moet verkopen. Het goud staat gewoon ten toon gesteld in de etalage, mensen kopen en voelen zich veilig. Er is bijna geen criminaliteit in Dubai. Het geeft je een veilig gevoel als je door de straten wandelt, desalniettemin hebben we geen juwelen gekocht. De meeste winkels zien er uitstekend uit en de reclamepanelen zijn stijlvol. In één van de winkels, ligt de zwaarste gouden ring ter wereld. Deze weegt bijna 64 kg en is versiert met ongeveer 5 kg edelstenen. Mijn foto van de ring is van slechte kwaliteit door de licht reflectie in het raam, maar ik wou dit toch niet weglaten in ons artikel..
