Comparative Analysis Between Gold and Silver

Gold & silver are both valued highly in Indian culture. They are made into ornaments or used as gifting options. Moreover, many investors believe that they act as a hedge against inflation. Despite these similarities, the two differ from each other on various grounds. Let's look at some of them:

Gold

  • Utility: Gold has very few applications apart from jewellery making.
  • Cost: Gold is more expensive than silver.
  • Volatility: Gold prices are comparatively more stable than silver rates.
  • Storage: Gold does not require special storage.

Silver

  • Utility: Almost half of the world's silver is used in industrial applications.
  • Cost: Silver costs lesser than gold.
  • Volatility: Due to its small market, silver prices are highly volatile.
  • Storage: Silver oxidises when exposed to the outside environment. It is also denser than gold and this requires specialised storage.

How is the Purity of Silver Evaluated in Ghaziabad?

The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) is a Government-backed institution which hallmarks precious metals in India. These include gold and silver. Hallmarking certifies the purity of silver in the final product.

Unlike gold, hallmarking for silver is not mandatory in India yet. At the same time, buying jewellery or coins without a hallmark is not advisable. So, exercise caution and put your money in the silver product only when it features the following things:

  • BIS mark
  • The purity grade.
  • Hallmarking identification mark 
  • Jeweller's identification mark 
  • Year of making

Lastly, ensure that you collect an invoice from the seller.
