Comparative Analysis of Gold vs. Silver as an Investment in Kumbakonam

Silver's reduced price makes it more accessible to those who do not have plenty to invest. And because there is no need for a hefty outlay of capital, the silver market is a lucrative option.

Silver's value surpasses gold's because of the more than 3000 applications it finds in the industry. The silver market is far smaller than the gold market. There are more buyers in the silver industrial sector.

As gold is the benchmark for currencies all around the world, silver has never needed oversight from the government. The freedom to operate is a boon for the silver trade. And there are several historical instances of governments seizing gold from its rightful owners. The governments of the world have never, however, taken silver into their possession. Therefore, silver has always been considered a safer rare metal to invest in and trade.

How to Test Purity of Silver in Kumbakonam

 

The Magnet Test

For this experiment, it is recommended to use a strong magnet, such as one made from neodymium. You should position the magnet close to the silver. Any silver that sticks strongly to a magnet is probably not pure. Continue your tests with copper, gold, and any other anti - ferromagnetic metals you can imagine of.

Acid Test

In the acid test, we use a corrosive material, the reaction to which in turn depends on the composition of the silver being tested. Online retailers like eBay have a wide selection of silver acid test kits. In order to verify that silver is indeed pure, an acid test might be performed. If an item is silver-plated, you can tell by looking for a scraped mark on the top.

BIS Hallmark

Ultimately, to ensure whether the silver you plan to buy is real or not,  the BIS Hallmark is required.

A piece of silver must meet the BIS Hallmark criteria before being sold in India. This ensures the product has been reviewed and accepted by a government-approved hallmarking lab. Due to the precision and reliability of the hallmarking process, only licenced jewellers are allowed to undertake the procedure.
