Local aware of this and are traded, visitors or retire without asking this amount, or timidly asked the real price. Merchants can call the same amount or a little lower, which is also a reason for fleeing the buyer. In the Emirates, the price of the product is not fixed, if the product is gold without stones (or with small stones, where their weight is not too much influence on the price of the product), its price is made up of its weight. Price per gram changed every day, and usually, the same for all the shops.

Benevolent than the buyer, the more serious intent to buy the kind and price falls rapidly.



35. Among the most Indian and Islamic buyers are very common citizens of developed countries in Africa, especially Nigeria (although there are many very black from different parts of the world, not only in Africa), are very fond of black gold and the more links in the chain and the chain itself is absurd better.

36. White buyers, too, are from all edges of the world.
