Dubai to make world’s longest gold chain




Dubai: Dubai will make a bid for yet another Guinness World Record to its name with the world’s longest 22 carat gold chain measuring five kilometres and weighing 180kg.

Part of the Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) promotions, the world record attempt is being made by Dubai Gold and Jewellery Group in association with four major jewellers in town – Malabar Gold and Diamonds, Siroya, Sky Jewellers and Jewel One.

Dubbed the Dubai Celebration Chain, the world record attempt is part of the 20th anniversary festivities of DSF, which will run between January 1 and February 1, 2015.

“This year being the 20th year of DSF, a major milestone in Dubai’s calendar, Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment wanted to do something big and unique and, going with the city’s trend in creating world records, we came up with this idea of making the longest gold chain,” said Tawhid Abdullah, chairman of Dubai Gold and Jewellery Group, after announcing the project.
