Factors Affecting Silver Prices in Hubli and Dharwad

 

US Dollar Fluctuation

The US index inversely affects silver prices. When the US Dollar (USD) weakens, the silver rates go up. Similarly, the strengthening of the USD causes silver rates to come down.

Inflation

Silver and gold are often believed to hedge against inflation. As the value of currency declines, investors turn towards these precious metals to preserve their wealth. And when the demand for silver goes up, the silver rates also increase.

Demand and Supply

The dynamics of demand and supply heavily impact silver prices in Hubli and Dharwad. An increase in the demand-supply ratio will inevitably drive up silver prices. For instance, the festival of Dhanteras sees a surge in silver rates. This occurs due to an exuberant demand for silver during that season.

Industrial Demand

Industries rely heavily on silver. This has fuelled an increase in the need for silver as a commodity. In turn, silver rates have gone up.

Oil Prices

Silver mining is an energy-exhaustive process. Hence, silver rates are directly affected by oil prices. At the same time, the logistics of importing silver require a constant oil supply. Thus, any change in oil prices impacts silver rates.

Gold Price

The price of gold and silver are historically interlinked. In general, when the price of gold rises or falls, so does the price of silver. Some professionals trade on the GSR (Gold-Silver Ratio). They buy or sell depending on how silver rates move with gold rates.

How is the Purity of Silver Evaluated in Hubli and Dharwad?

Mostly the purity or fineness of silver alloys is currently stated using the millesimal method. Under this method, a numeric figure denotes the purity of the alloy. It represents purity in parts per thousand. For instance, 999 is silver in its purest form, with a purity of 99.9%.


But how do you ascertain the purity of silver when purchasing it from a jeweller? The first thing to check in this case is the hallmark. In 2005, the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) introduced hallmarking for silver. BIS-accredited assaying and hallmarking centres stamp the silver and silver alloys with standard markings. Make sure to check these five marks while purchasing silver:

  • BIS certification
     
  • Purity/fineness grade,
     
  • The identification mark of the assaying centre
     
  • Year of production
     
  • The identification mark of the jeweller/manufacturer

However, unlike gold, silver hallmarking has not been made mandatory. But you can always request the jeweller to get hallmarked at the time of purchase. However, hallmarking will attract a charge of ₹35 + GST at 18%.
