Big jump in demand possible due to festivals
The demand for gold jewellery, coins and bars peaks in India during October to December due to festivals including Dhanteras and Diwali starting next week. According to the World Gold Council, jewelery sales in India nearly doubled in the last quarter of last year, as the impact of the pandemic is over. Gold rose 0.1% to $1,652.23 an ounce in global markets. Spot silver rose 0.2% to $18.7181 an ounce.
Check Before Purchasing
With the rise in the price of gold, nowadays fake jewelery is being sold indiscriminately in the market. Regarding this, ISO is advising people to check the hallmark before buying gold. However, many smaller venues still sell jewelers without hallmarks. Through hallmark, you are able to differentiate between real and fake gold. Therefore, our advice is to buy only hallmarked jewelry. If the hallmarked jewel is made of 18 carat, then 750 will be written on it, 21 carat 875, 23 carat 958 and 24 carat gold will have 999 written on it.
