Factors Influencing Gold Prices in Sikar

  • Demand and Supply – As is the case for every product in the world, gold prices are also affected by changes in demand and supply. 
    But whenever there is an increase in demand for gold, the prices soar high due to the limited supply. This is especially witnessed during the wedding and festive seasons when people buy gold ornaments and jewellery in massive amounts. 
  • Inflation – The basic concept of inflation is that the price of a commodity increases due to a decrease in the currency's strength. As and when the Indian rupee depreciates, gold prices tend to witness a hike. Indians use gold as a hedge and prefer to invest in it.
  • Import Duty – Gold mines in India are very rare; hence, India has to import most of its gold from other countries. Thus, import duties are levied on the price of gold you purchase
  • Exchange Rate Fluctuations – USD is the currency in which gold is purchased and sold in the global market. Thereby, to import gold into India, payment is made in USD. Depreciation in the value of the Indian rupee in comparison to the USD increases the cost of buying gold from other nations.

How to Check the Purity of Gold in Sikar?

As per BIS, hallmarking of gold based on purity is done using 22K916 for 22K gold, 18K750 for 18K gold, and 14K585 for 14K gold.

How is the Purity of Gold Evaluated in Sikar?

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.
