Comparative Analysis of Gold vs Silver in Ahmedabad

Both gold and silver are good investment options, requiring investors to pay storage costs. Let us check out the comparison between gold and silver:

  • The gold market is far more liquid than the silver market. Better liquidity means investors can make large purchases or sales without moving the commodity's price. However, if you are dealing in smaller volumes of silver, then that liquidity must be fine.
     
  • The silver market is more volatile than the gold market. It is both a good and bad thing.
     
  • SIlver's volatility is helpful as more volatility means larger price swings.
     
  • When the economy is doing well, there is high demand for silver, influencing the prices. Moreover, the industrial use of gold is very little.
     
  • Storage is again a thing to consider while purchasing a metal. As silver tarnishes more quickly than gold, it requires a good storage facility.

Silver has distinctive properties that could help you identify the purest silver. To check the purity of silver in Ahmedabad, you could:

  • Authentication Hallmarks: You should look for stamps or markings on silver. There should be a manufacturer mark, date of manufacture and additional info about the piece. 
     
  • Magnet Test: Like most metals, silver is also non-magnetic. At the same time, when buying silver, grab a magnet and see if they are drawn to your object. If the magnet stick strongly, then it is not silver.
