Why do OFWs opt for gold jewelleries as investments?

As Filipinos work their way here in the UAE and save up for their future, one of the items that more and more OFWs are beginning to spend on a whole lot more are precious gold jewelleries here in the market.

Jamil Abou Kasem, Managing Director of Kabayan Jewellery attributes this to more Filipino workers making informed purchasing decisions as they have realized the convenience that buying gold jewellery has during their stay in another country.

“Nowadays we should think for our future, while thinking about our enjoyment at present as well. You can achieve both by buying gold jewellery – because you can use it as fashionable wear and at any point of time you can encash it by reselling the item or perhaps by exchanging it to another piece. No other investment plan in the world can give you that kind of flexibility,” shares Kasem.

Assurance of Quality

Their shop, Kabayan Jewellery which is located at Shop no. 7, Belghuzooz 2 Building Opposite Gift Garden at Al Satwa in Dubai, sells authentic and fashionable 18K Italian Crafted Jewellery with a range of collections and variety including Full Sets, Rings, Bracelets, Pendants, Earrings, and many more.

Operations began barely a month ago at their shop in Satwa but Kabayan Jewellery has put together a team with over 40 years of experience in sale as well as a great customer support for Filipinos from all over the UAE. “Based on our wholesale experience, we have established a retail team that will stand out in the retail market by setting a long term plan while building ang maintaining strong relations with our customers,” said Kasem.

The management also provides great after sales service as they ensure quality and title with the hallmark that exists on the tag, complete with computerized invoices that enables the customer the capability to sell their gold overseas.

To make it more convenient for Filipinos, the shop not only has amazing gold buying and exchange rates, they also provide lay away plans where customers can reserve jewellery for a period of time and pay in installments, as well as seasonal offers and promotions.

“You should base your purchase of gold jewellery both on its quality as well as its value for money without having to compromise on any of them. We, at Kabayan Jewellery, will help you by giving pieces of advice on how to select your jewellery investment,” shared Kasem.

Kabayan Jewellery is located at Shop no. 7, Belghuzooz 2 Building Opposite Gift Garden at Al Satwa in Dubai. Their contact number is +4 226 6959.
