Anyone can buy from Dubai Gold Mall but if you not have experience of buying gold and do not know much about gold then you must be careful about the below tips.

Price Prudent:

Price prudent mean you should know what is market price of gold on the specific day when you are buying the gold. The gold price have huge fluctuation every day so must know the price for better deals and bargaining at the mall.

Knowing the gold standards:

Gold standards are usually defined in Carrots. The highest carrot is 26 which mean 99.9% pure gold. Anything below 26 carrot mean there is impurities in gold. For gold ornament usually standard of gold is 24 carrot which mean that gold is 92% pure. The 26 carrot of gold is not used for making jewelry as it is very soft and jewelry breaks. For each carrot the price is different. The color of gold indicated what kind of impurities are added. Yellow color mean that silver is added while brown color mean copper is added in gold to make ornaments.

Choice Prudent:

You must be choice prudent when buying gold. You should exactly know what you are going to buy. What standard of gold on what price and what design with what finish. If you are not clear at home then you should make yourself clear in mall after watching different shops. Do not buy if you are confuse on any of these, design, gold standard, gold finishing or gold price. All of these are equally important for making good deals in gold.

Bargain on right thing:

Always try to bargain on right thing. The different shops have same design so better to know the market first. A complicated and good finished product have higher labor charges. Do not bargain on the weight rate of gold as it is usually same everywhere. Try to bargain on the making charges which shopkeeper bargain easily. If you know that a shopkeeper is charging high for the gold rate you can complain to police but high gold rate charge is usually very rare.

Another thing on which you can bargain is the stones used in ornaments. This is also a bargain able item but avoid buying jewelry with heavy stones if you don’t have ability to recognize the quality of stones.

Window shopping:

When you are in mall you are not in single shop and don’t create image this product is only available with this shop. Do window shopping for some time to get idea what kind of things is available and on what rate. Once you clear your mind about the making design and requirement of yourself then go to make some serious deal.

Unnecessary Bargaining:

Avoid unnecessary bargaining. If you thing a dealer is already offering you a reasonable rate then don’t go for the future bargaining. The Dealer may refuse to sell the product if got irritated. The dealer will never make himself in loss for you in any case.

If not like the gold in Dubai Mall:

If you not like the gold in Dubai Mall must remember that it is not only place in Dubai to buy the gold. A lot of other malls and shops are available in Dubai to buy the gold. So if you not like the gold or style leave the mall and go for some other mall. Many mall are even available near to Dubai Gold Mall.
