Dubai: Gold and diamond fans in Dubai have more than two weeks left to score some bargains at the jewellery counters across the city.
The month-long “My Jewellery Season,” which is happening now until July 8, 2018 is offering consumers a chance to buy new ornaments at more than Dh1,000 to Dh4,000 less a piece, with some retail outlets slashing prices by 50 per cent to 80 per cent.
And if you haven’t had the chance to visit the shops yet, you have plenty of time to plan your bargain-hunting better, as organisers of the first-ever discount bonanza have just released the full list of retail outlets that have pledged to offer discounts.
Money-saving deals can be had at jewellery stores in Deira’s Gold Souk, Dubai Mall; Deira City Centre, Karama Centre, Meena Bazaar and various locations in Bur Dubai.
Not all participating stores have the same deals, however, and the key to getting the most out of the jewellery shopping festival is to know what each outlet is exactly offering.
At one store, a 10-carat ring is being sold for Dh3,500 less, and in another store, gold coins are being given away to shoppers who spend at least Dh3,000 on diamond jewellery.
The shops to look out for are those operated by Jawhara Jewellery, La Marquise, Al Liali Jewellery, Lifestyle Fine Jewellery, Malabar Gold and Diamonds, Popley Kewalram and Sky Jewellery.
