Because of the abundance of gold in this city, the locals' craze for ornaments is obvious.

What Factors Affect the Gold Prices in Kolar?

Demand and Supply

This factor influence gold prices directly. When demand exceeds supply, prices rise to maintain equilibrium.

Inflation

Inflation reduces the value of a currency. During such times, people invest in gold to mitigate the risk of inflation instead of holding cash.

Central Bank

The central bank ensures liquidity by keeping cash and gold reserves in hand. If the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) begins stockpiling physical gold, the price is likely to rise due to a potential supply shortage.

Interest rates

The interest rate is inversely related to gold. People prefer to invest in gold when interest rates on savings and fixed deposits fall, leading to a demand and price increase.

USD movement

The imports and exports of gold are carried out in USD. If the USD rises in value against the Indian currency, imports will become more expensive, as will gold purchases.

Things to Consider When Buying Gold in Kolar

 

Check the Purity

Examine the hallmarking on the gold coin or ornament you intend to purchase. Check to see if there is a BIS certification mark. The hallmark represents the purity level, engraving date, and jeweller's identity.

Price Check

The price of gold fluctuates daily. It is critical to double-check the price on the commodity exchange to avoid being duped. The advice is to buy the ornaments in the off-season when demand for gold in the Indian jewellery market is low.

Making charges

It represents the labour cost incurred in making the jewellery you wish to buy. This charge varies by jeweller and is higher if the ornament is handmade instead of the use of technology. 

Stone-Studded Jewellery

Avoid stone-studded jewellery if you are purchasing gold ornaments for investment purposes and intend to sell them in the future. These jewels comprise diamonds, rubies, or emeralds. The price and the volatility of different precious metals vary significantly, making valuation difficult.

Buy Back Policy

Kolar Jewellers offers a buyback programme. Under this scheme, you can resell the ornaments to your jewellers at the current market rate, less making charges.
