Whatever brand you have in mind to buy, find it at any of the large shopping malls, where most jewellery stores are located. Malls like Madinat Zayed, Abi Dhabi Mall, The Galleria, Yas Mall, and Al Wahda Mall house leading jewellery brands and are the best places to find the latest collections from these designers. Gold jewellery and diamond jewelry are very popular among shoppers in Abu Dhabi. Not surprising given the quality of stone and workmanship used to create them. Whether an engagement ring, wedding bands, friendship rings, necklaces and pendants, chains, bracelets and bangles, or earrings, there are thousands upon thousands of them in these jewellery shops.
Should you have an own design that you would like your jewellery made in, bring the design with you to the shop. If it's a design you have in mind, explain it to the jeweler. Most of the shops have craftsmen on site who can make an impression of the design you are describing. If they get the sketch right, they will then quote you a price. If it sounds reasonable to you, give them the go ahead and they will make the jewellery for you as per your specifications - your choice of metal, karat, design and shape, choice of stone, size and the like. A lot of the time, you will be able to buy jewellery at a lower price if you put on your bargaining shoes and go hard on the seller. Bear in mind that no seller will agree to a dirt cheap price. However, it's possible to get jewellery that falls within your budget, no matter how low. Jewellers understand that buyers have different buying capacities and are prepared with jewellery for each price range. This way, no one goes home empty handed, at least not because they couldn't find jewellery that falls within their spending budget.
Shopping for jewellery in Abu Dhabi is made more exciting by the easy availability of dealers, wide variety and flexible pricing on most jewellery. Get into the souks and malls and find the perfect bling for your style.
