Home to one of the biggest banana plantations in the world, the city of Jalgaon was quick to embrace the development and growth offered by planned industrialisation. Modern Jalgaon has excellent educational institutions and hospitals, and a fast expanding residential suburb – the result of a rising construction boom in the city. All this growth and development has led to the residents of this city viewing gold in a way their ancestors didn’t – as an investment instead of just as jewellery or as a measure of success and prosperity.
Gold jewellers in Jalgaon are highly sought after for their skill, and people from all over the country prefer purchasing gold from the generations-old jewellers and jewellery shops in Jalgaon, despite the slightly higher prices.
Gold rate in Jalgaon
The base gold rate fluctuates and varies from time to time based on many factors like international market trends, interest rate fluctuations from international Reserve banks, etc. The base price of gold also depends on the purity of the gold in question.
24 karat gold: The most pure form of gold that can be physically traded is 24 karat gold of 99.9% purity. Since completely pure gold of this karat rating is usually brittle and soft, it isn’t preferred by jewellers for their craft. This type of gold is usually traded as bullion or coins, and held as investments to gain value over time. It is the most valuable form of gold that can be commercially traded on a large scale. Currently, the price for 10 grams of 24 karat gold in Jalgaon is Rs.29,760 (as on 11th March, 2016). Over the last week, the gold rate has risen and dipped marginally, as it was Rs.29,500 on the 2nd of March, Rs.29,900 on the 5th, and dipped down to Rs.29,690 on the 10th before settling at Rs.29,760 on the 11th.
22 karat gold: This is the most valuable gold that’s used for making jewellery, etc. This grade of gold has a lower purity rating, as it is purposefully mixed with other metals and “impurities” to increase its strength and make it useful for crafting jewellery, etc. Goldsmiths and jewellers, etc. use 22 karat, 18 karat and 14 karat gold for making jewellery, but 22 karat is the highest in value among these and the most beautiful to behold in the form of ornate jewellery. Currently, the price for 10 grams of 22 karat gold in Jalgaon is Rs.27,820 (as on 11th March, 2016).

Investment avenues for gold in Jalgaon
Investments in gold can be made in many different ways, the two most common are listed as under:
Market traded gold: Gold that’s traded in the form of E-gold or Gold ETFs rarely involves the investor making any physical contact with real gold, but instead allows him/her to trade representative certificates that are assigned to gold that’s stored in a secure location. These transactions are perfect for those diligent few who wish to profit off the fluctuating gold market, by buying low and selling high, or simply holding on to the gold itself. There is no risk of the physical gold being stolen in these cases, and E-gold and ETF transactions are highly secured online with the best encryption. The Mumbai Stock Exchange facilitates trading in Gold ETFs, and the National Spot Exchange allows investors to trade and hold E-gold.
Traditional physical gold: The old-fashioned way to buy gold – over the counter from a bank or a jeweller is more prominent in Jalgaon. Physical gold is rarely traded as a commodity, but instead bought and stored to be used on auspicious occasions or weddings, and as a determinant of the prosperity and wealth of the person holding the gold. Jalgaon jewellery shops are massive and very well appointed, made not only to cater to the residents of Jalgaon, but to the entire country – as the city attracts many people who wish to purchase gold ornaments made in a very specific style.
