Expat exploits in Qatar

Super bling

The Versailles jewellers in Doha sells gold jewellery that might not have been out of place at the French palace of the same name. It is, instead, just down the road from the Al Sadd Food Palace.

Here are just three of the ten window displays.

Gold jewellery
I am not sure exactly who might wear these and for what occasion.


I am also uncertain what you call them, but they remind me of pictures of the sort of thing worn by the wives of the Pharoah, or such like, from the Encylopaedias I read as a kid.

My favourite is the Queen of Sheba one… that’s my name not theirs, where the piece is finished off with a crown.


There is no indication of retail prices in the window… they will not be cheap.
