Gold Souq in Bahrain is without doubt a must visit place when visiting Bahrain. The Bahrain Gold Souq attracts maximum crowd for its hall mark gold. Bahrain Gold is usually 21 carat and hallmark, and is available in infinite number of styles, including traditional ones. The market sells lots of jewellery including the contemporary ones.


The quality of gold, coupled with excellent craftsmanship and low prices form an irresistible offer and combination. Here the jewellery is either 21 or 22 carat and even 24 carat gold, rather than the usual 18 carat or less seen in the west.

The Gold souk building close to Bab Al Bahrain and the newly opened Gold City between them, houses hundreds of jewellery shops, apart from dozen other stores in the area.

However, although gold is quite popular with both tourists and residents in Bahrain, Bahrain is quite famous for its pearls. Bahrain has been a world class pearling centre from times immemorial. The pearls in Bahrain are natural and account for their irregular shapes, colour, cream or white or even green. The combination of gold and pearl jewellery in Bahrain is truly stunning.

Visitors to Bahrain usually enjoy the bustle of the busy Gold souk in Bahrain, with all its glitz and glamour of gold, diamond and pearl jewellery.
