  Jewlery souqs downtown Doha, Qatar
by bpwillet

Some of the things that Qataris have been known for is their pearls. The industry really took off for Qatar and put them on the map. They are sold in some very upscale mall stores at the Hyatt Plaza mall or City Center (Carrefour) malls but the souqs may have a better price selection. Haggling is accepted but within reason. Every shop owner appreciates good business. There are a number of shops to choose from in the area so if jewlery and finer objects are on your list this is the place to go.

What to buy: You can go shopping for all kinds of qualities of pearls and colors (black, white, pink, yellow) for quite affordable prices. There is also a great selection of gold, silver, precious stones and some near-real high end watches. Some of the stores are specific as well. In other words you can go to a shop where all they sell is gold items, or all they sell is pearls.

Directions: This area of the souqs is not hard to find, its the parking that is hard to find. The area is between the Grand Hamdan and Jabr Ibn Mohammed St. Park where you can.
