How is the purity of silver evaluated in Darbhanga?


Silver, in its purest form, is very soft. To check the purity of the silver, you could:


Check for BIS Mark

It is a triangular symbol with a dot inside and is the official logo of the Bureau of Indian Standards. Your silver item should have a BIS mark on it.

Ice Cube Test

Place an ice cube on the silver you bought. If the ice cube melts faster, the silver is pure, and if the ice melts slowly, the silver is fake.

Ring Test

A ring test is performed to identify the purity of the silver by rubbing it against another metal or another silver object. The silver is likely pure when you do a ring test on silver, and it makes a beautiful sound. If the sound is blunt and dull, the silver could be fake.

Identification Mark 

Every silver item you buy will have a jeweller's identification mark.
Magnet Test: Silver exhibits a weak response to a magnet because it is paramagnetic. Silver is not real silver if a magnet sticks to it more strongly.

Paper Silver vs Physical Silver

 

Paper Silver:

Obtained through commodity markets such as futures accounts, ETFs, and certificates.
Gives exposure to the price of silver without physically owning the metal.
Does not have intrinsic value, as it only represents a contract for the underlying commodity.
Carries counterparty or credit risk, as the value of the investment is dependent on the financial stability of the issuer.
Suitable for short-term speculation or as a way to gain exposure to the silver market.


Physical Silver:

Obtained directly from dealers or mints.
The actual metal that is held in storage.
Has intrinsic value as it is a tangible asset.
No counterparty risk as it can be held in one's possession.
Requires storage as it tarnishes easily and can be affected by other environmental factors.
Preferred by some investors as a hedge against inflation and geopolitical risks.
In summary, while paper silver provides a convenient way to gain exposure to the silver market, physical silver has intrinsic value, no counterparty risk and it can be use as hedge. However, physical silver requires storage and care.
