Tips for Buying Gold in Dubai

Now that you know some of the best places where you can buy gold in Dubai, let’s talk about getting the best possible deals. If you’re a “beginner” buyer, there are certain things to keep in mind, such as gold karats, bargaining, and authentication certificates.

1. Educate Your Self and Know Your “karats.”

“Karat” is a unit used to measure gold purity. The higher the karat, the purer the gold, with 24 karats being the highest possible rank. Keep in mind, though, that 24-karat gold is too soft to be made into jewelry, so it is usually sold as bars or coins.

Meanwhile, if you’re planning to buy a necklace, bracelet, or ring band, you could go for a 22-karat piece. Similarly, if you’re looking to buy a diamond ring, then you could opt for 18-karat gold, which is more durable for creating stone-studded pieces.

2. Don't Forget to Bargain!

Even if the price of gold is typically fixed, you can still “haggle” when it comes to other charges, especially if you’re in a traditional market or souk. Don’t be shy to bargain… it is actually expected, even encouraged!

3. Ask For a Certificate.

Aside from getting a sales invoice and receipt, you can also ask for an authentication certificate. This certificate indicates the karats, weight of gold and other stones, and labor cost of your piece. With this certificate, you can be sure that the item is authentic, and you could also have it authenticated and valued in different parts of the world!
