Souk Mubarakiya Gold Market

I've always liked going to the gold souks here. Even though the gold right now is alot higher than it used to be I still like to see the beautiful and sometimes tacky designs. Gold is always a good thing to keep in case of financial emergency as it only goes higher and higher in value.

Souk Mubarakiya has a pretty good gold market and the prices are fairly reasonable. The stores usually give you a good price when selling your gold or you can trade it in on something else because they go by the weight. There's a gold shop in Fahaheel and the guys there will make anything you want just bring a drawing or idea and they'll make it for you and even deliver it for you too.

I had a silver design made for my daughter's birthday and the owner delivered it to me which was cool. They are really nice guys also. Most of the expats I know go there. Here are some pics of the shops in Mubarakiya.






Happy Shopping!

  4. I was there in 03 and 04 and bought my share of gold I'm trying to find the card the guy of this hole in the wall and must have misplaced. I think the name started with Na and was a small shop that had a old stump that they worked the gold on. Like you said I just brought pictures and told them what I wanted I had a 18k gold bracelet that was super heavy that got stolen and would like to replace it if you have a website (at that time they didn't or phone number would greatly appreciate it. My email is LEGACYBUILDLLC@GMAIL.COM THANKS ahead of time.
