Determinants of Gold Prices in Bangalore

Here are some factors that determine the gold price in Bangalore:

  1. Since most of the gold demand is met through imports, customs duties impact gold prices in Bangalore.
  2. Fluctuations in the Indian rupee also impact the price of imported gold, thereby affecting the price in B’luru.
  3. Most of the gold in India is imported by banks. The gold you buy in B’luru contains a margin for the banks. 
  4. Bullion dealers charge a margin before you buy the gold articles.
  5. The price of imported gold after factoring in currency fluctuations, customs duty, bank's margin and dealers' margin is then adjusted for local taxes in Bangalore.
  6. Variations in the rates in Bangalore can be accounted for based on:
    i. Cost of transporting gold
    ii. Security protocols followed by the state
  7. Consequently, southern states in India have slightly lower gold prices, as compared to northern states.
  8. Gold is considered a haven when market-linked investments become risky. Hence, when the stock market falls, gold prices increase.

The global demand and supply of gold keep fluctuating in response to macroeconomic factors and geopolitical situations. This impacts the local price of gold in Bangalore as well.

Understanding the Gold Purity Nomenclature in Bangalore

The purity of gold can be verified through the hallmark provided by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). If you are looking to buy gold in Bangalore, check the hallmark before buying it. 

All registered jewellers in B’luru are required to stamp gold articles with the hallmark and gold karats. There are very high chances of being defrauded in the purchase of un-hallmarked gold.

The purity of gold is measured in karats. 24-karat gold is the purest form of gold, containing 99.9% gold. However, it isn't easy to make jewellery with it because it is too fragile. 

Generally, 22-karat gold is used to make jewellery. It contains 22 parts gold and two parts copper, silver, nickel, and zinc. It has a purity of 91.6% and is hence also called "916 gold."

14K and 18K gold are used to make designer jewellery which has a lesser quantity of gold.
