Gold Salesman in Saudi Arabia

Gold is sold by weight here in Saudi Arabia – design doesn’t really matter as far as the price goes. Gold is almost always given to Saudi brides and is commonly found in 18K, 21K, or 24K.

    I wanna ask regarding the gold price in Saudi Arabia Shopping Mall…My friend bought 3.7 grams 21 K Saudi Gold at 750 Riyals….Is the price is right of 3.7 grams 21 K for 750 Riyals?

    • Hi Michelle – I really don’t know the going rate for gold. I’m sure it fluctuates frequently. I just know that gold is sold by weight and the design generally is not taken into account at all.

      Hi Michelle,

      I asked the for the price of a 10 gram bar a while back it was around 1700 riyals. so if you divide that, it should be around 500 riyals for the gold itself and the rest for design and packaging.

      P.S. as Susie said, the price is always fluctuating so you can’t say the real price for sure.

    Hello…I just want to ask regarding the gold price in the shopping mall in Saudi Arabia…My friend bought a necklace with pendant for 750 Saudi Riyals. The weight is 3.7 grams only…..Is it 750 Saudi Riyals an exact amount for 21 K 3.7 grams?

    Recently we saw on TV news how a fancy new hotel (somewhere in the Emirates maybe?) was selling gold bars in a vending machine!

    Your young salesman here is cute. Am I allowed to say that? 🙂

    • Yes, Dina – you are allowed to say that!

        The news item about gold bars from vending machines that has been showing here, including on US channels, is about those in Japan. The Japanese apparently find this acceptable as buying gold bars or coins there otherwise involves huge amounts of bureaucratic machinations. Also the Japanese are far ahead of the rest of the world in the use of vending machines for a range of items, including live crabs. Historically, I believe they were the first to have vending machines for condoms in public places, eg airports.

      • Hi Chiara – There are just some things that I don’t think I would want to buy from a vending machine! Live crab? Hmmmm…

      • Osamah says:
