Factors Impacting the Price of Gold in Guntur

Gold is considered one of the safest investment avenues. Experts suggest that even during economic and political crises, investing in gold is fruitful because its value appreciates.

Several factors influence gold rates in Guntur, some of which are listed below -

  • Since most of the gold demand is met through imports, customs duties impact gold prices in Guntur.
  • Fluctuations in the Indian rupee also impact the price of imported gold.
  • Most of the gold in India is imported by banks. Thus, the price of gold you pay contains a margin for the banks. 
  • Variations in the rates in Guntur can be accounted for based on the following:
    i. Cost of transporting the gold
    ii. Security protocols followed by the state
    Consequently, southern states in India have slightly lower gold prices, as compared to northern states, since northern states are farther away from ports.

Gold is considered a haven when market-linked investments become risky. Hence, when the stock market falls, gold prices increase. This is because investors tend to invest in gold during such times.

How to Test Gold Purity in Guntur?

Karat (K) is the unit used to measure the purity of gold. Gold is available in various purity levels in Guntur -

  • 24K gold: 99.9% pure
  • 22K gold: 91.6% pure
  • 18K gold: 75% pure
  • 14K gold: 58.5% pure

If you wish to check the purity of gold on your own, you can do so by the following methods -

  1. Scratch test: Take a black stone, an unglazed ceramic plate or a porcelain tile, and gently rub it on your gold jewellery or bullion. If you see a golden yellow tint after scratching, then your gold is authentic.
  2. Magnifying glass test: Take a magnifying glass and carefully check the entire article. If any portion of the item shows discolouration or is shinier than the rest of the article, there are chances of the gold being fake.
  3. Float test: Put your jewellery or gold coin in a bowl of water. Since gold has a higher density than water, real gold will straightaway sink to the bottom. If the gold is fake, it will float above the bowl's bottom. Please note this test might not be 100% accurate.
  4. Magnet test: Get a strong magnet and place it near your gold item. If the magnet repels the gold, then the gold is pure.
  5. Vinegar test: Fill some white vinegar in a bowl and place your gold article in it for 15 minutes. If you see any change in the colour, then the gold is not genuine.

How is the Purity of Gold Evaluated in Guntur?

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.
