Hi Hobe

Probably your last line about sums it all up.

Overall I have had a better deal in the Gold Souk due to bartering and the choice is far greater,but I have also found the prices at duty free to be competative for more of the plain type of gold necklaces, rings etc.They are a bit dearer usually but not by a great amount

A lot will be down to whether you can be bothered haggling and traipsing round the various shops or whether you want to just walk into the airport and pick out something that may or may not suit.

I tend to use the airport as a last chance if there is anything on show that is the right price

The quality of gold craftsmanship is not very high in Dubai so avoid complex looking items, you will probably spend a fortune on repairs.....

If you stick to a simple band then you should get a good deal in the souk

I would beg to differ - the quality of gold craftsmanship is very high in Dubai and the styles and artisan skills you see in the Middle East are second to none ! They are especially good at making complex and detailed jewelry items. Their costs are also amongst the lowest in the world.

Its hard to give you prices of jewelry items since the cost is influenced by the gold purity (18 or 21 or 22k), whether white or yellow, whether it is a simple design or requires a lot of work, whether the item has precious or semi-precious stones set within it - all of these affect the price.

What you can ask at the shops is the price per gram - they may give you this or they may say the price is by the item as a whole. This will help you compare and decide.

I guess I must just have been unlucky by having three items that needed repairing and receiving the same advise from Jewellers in the Netherlands, Belgium and the UK...

Going on the feedback off this forum alone then I would say the quality must be good as we get lots and lots more positive reports than negative ones regarding jewellery.

Perhaps as you said you were just unlucky!!
