wedding ring

Hi,

We are in dubai for 2 full days in august on our way back from Thailand. We would like to buy our wedding rings there. Mine would have to be specially made in to fit in with my engagenent ring. Both rings will be platinum. Do you think that we could order rings on day one and expect them to be ready on day two or are we being too optimistic? Also were would be the better place to purchase, the Gold and Diamond Park or the Gold Souk?

Regards,

Zippy

Personally I think 2 days is pushing it a bit and forget it if one of the days you are going to be there is a Friday.

But perhaps you still want to give it a go so .........

Both places are open from 10am till 10pm every day except Friday when they open at around 4pm.

The Gold and Diamond park will be more comfortable in August because of the air con and you should also consider distance from where you are staying. The G&D park is near the beach area and the Gold Soukh is the other end of town across the creek, which is about 1 hour from the beach area in OK traffic.

When you've made your choice of ring and jeweller make it very clear that you are leaving the next day and the time you will be back to pick the rings up. Don't pay until you have the finished article.

Good luck.

Also, there aren't that many jewellers here who specialise in platinum.
