Eid Mubarak (blessed Eid) celebrating the end of Ramadan, people went to buy gifts for their love ones, usually in the form of gold jewelries or with electronic gadgets, sweets and chocolates, employees receive a month bonus, others are lucky to have even more!
We decided to visit the Gold Souk (market of gold) in old town Jeddah just to know if we can afford the soaring prices under the soaring hot weather of Jeddah.
Surprisingly the price of gold went down from SR 220 per gram to Sr 150-160 per gram. Available in 18-21-24 K different designs.Unfortunately, at this time I can’t afford to buy any jewellery for myself, so I just took a lot of pictures for you to see.
Even silver and precious stones are not affordable on my budget. 😦
Oh! by the way, fake jewelries are also available in small stores, an exact copies of the original jewelries .
Oh well, I had fun looking and appreciating the craftsmanship so ladies I leave you with this quote:
” It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver” -Mahatma Gandhi
HAPPY EID EVERYONE!!!
