The pleasant tiny seaside town of Vizianagaram lies along the Bay of Bengal in southeastern India. It is about 40 kilometres to the north of Vishakhapatnam — the prominent port city in Andhra Pradesh. Vizianagaram is a part of the eastern ghats. The city takes its name from the famed Vijayanagar empire that ruled the better part of the Deccan region for more than three centuries.

Vizianagaram serves as a rail hub and a shipping hub for sunn hemp (a jute substitute) and jute products. The modern Vizianagaram district was established in 1979, including parts of the neighbouring districts of Srikakulam and Vishakhapatnam.

How is the Purity of Gold Measured in Vizianagaram?

 

The purity of gold can be determined using a variety of techniques. The acid test is one of the cheapest and most popular ways to test the purity of gold.

Acid testing kits are readily available. This method relies on the ability of gold to resist oxidation, corrosion or acid.

Most jewellers today use electronic gold testing equipment that measures the metal's electrical conductivity to ascertain its purity. These electronic testing devices have a good degree of accuracy. 

Other tools are used to check the purity of gold, including XRF (X-ray fluorescence spectrometers) and others.

However, it is safest to purchase BIS-hallmarked gold jewellery, which is a reliable assurance of purity. Assay offices are present in most cities where people can get their gold jewellery analysed.

Gold purity is expressed in karats. The purest form is 24 karats, followed by various levels of purity depending on the proportion of other metals added. In Vizianagaram, as in the other parts of the country, the most popular variants are 24, 22, 18 and 14 karats. Below are a few of the common levels of gold purity in India and globally.

  • 24 karats - 99.9% 
  • 23 karats - 95.8% 
  • 22 karats - 91.6% 
  • 21 karats - 87.5% 
  • 18 karats - 75.0%
  • 17 karats - 70.8% 
  • 14 karats - 58.3%
  • 10 karats - 41.7%
  • 9 karats - 37.5%
