Factors Influencing the Gold Rates in Balurghat

Gold prices in Balurghat fluctuate due to various factors, including interest rates, demand, and supply, tax rates, cost of transportation, state and local taxes, government assets, and other related expenses by jewellery businesses. Some major factors influencing the gold rates are below.


Inflation

Gold has substantial value and is utilised to mitigate inflation due to its almost steady character compared to the currency rate. This is the reason it is a more preferred investment option. Consequently, its demand increases when inflation increases and vice versa. As a result of the high demand, the price of gold will rise dramatically. This remains true for both international and domestic markets.


Interest rates 

The interest rate on financial goods and services is closely linked to gold demand. The current gold rates usually indicate the interest rate trends in a country. When rates are high, you tend to sell the gold, due to which the supply of the gold increases in the market, lowering the metal prices and vice versa.


Global Movement

Every global movement in gold’s value impacts its price in India. This is because India is one of the major importers of gold. When there is a change in import duty because of global price movements, the same reflects in domestic gold prices. Moreover, the currency's value and other investment products tend to fall during political unrest, but this is not the case with gold. Gold is seen as a secure base, so the demand and price of gold rise at such times.

How to Test the Purity of Gold?

Gold is only valuable if it is pure. Therefore, it is important to ensure the purity of gold. Below are some of the ways to test the purity of gold.
The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) states three things you should remember to evaluate gold's purity. The three ways to assess the purity of gold are as follows:


BIS Standard Mark

The BIS mark is a logo shaped like a triangle. The presence of this symbol on gold jewellery indicates that a BIS-certified facility has verified the purity of gold.

The Fineness of Gold

The fineness indicates the degree of purity of gold in a certain piece of gold jewellery. Moreover, the purity of the gold decides the price of a piece of gold jewellery.

The Alphanumeric Code

The hallmarked gold jewellery has a six-digit alphanumeric code embossed/etched on the piece. Each piece of jewellery has its code, commonly known as a Hallmark Unique Identification (HUID) number. You can authenticate this alphanumeric code using the BIS Care App.

Things to Consider Before Buying Gold Jewellery in Balurghat

Before buying gold, you must keep the following things in mind to ensure that you get the best returns on your investment. These are as follows.

Gold Prices

The price of gold varies from city to city because of its demand, import prices, and other aspects. The gold price for the day is determined by the price of transportation, imposed taxes, and other fees associated with its acquisition. The labour cost in producing jewels varies across cities and affects gold prices for each item. Thus, it is important to know about your city's gold rate before buying gold.

Purity

The gold ornaments or coins are made from a composite material of metals and gold. The alloy's purity is determined by the amount of gold in it. Karat and Fineness are two methods for determining physical gold purity. The purest form of gold is 24K. The purity of all other types of gold is determined by comparison with this standard. 

Making Charges

Jewellers charge making fees on their amulets and coins in addition to the price of gold. The production of gold articles is labour-intensive, and the complexity of the design impacts these costs. As a result, you may be spending an 8-10% amount higher than the real price of gold while purchasing gold ornaments. When purchasing gold for investment, it is best to buy coins or bars because they have a simple design and are more cost-effective.

How is the Purity of Gold Evaluated in Balurghat?

Gold is valuable only when it is pure. There are instances where customers are duped with impure gold. Hence, confirming the purity of gold is crucial.

The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) is a government authority that certifies the purity of gold. According to BIS, the following factors are to be kept in mind when buying gold.

  1. BIS Mark

    Jewellery hallmarked by BIS will have a BIS logo on it. Remember that since BIS is the only authorized laboratory in India for gold certification.

  2. Karat

    Karat is a scale to gauge gold's purity. While 24 karat gold is the purest, it is too soft for use. Hence, other metals are added and the gold available in the market is often 22 Karat.

  3. Jewellers Identification Mark

    The gold you buy should also carry an identification mark by an authorized jeweller. This helps ensure the gold is from a credible source. The mark can also be helpful in the case of disputes.
