Details of Gold Price in Karnataka (22 Karat & 24 Karat) - Till August 2015
Rate at which gold sells in the market changes every day with respect to the movement of the stock market. Also, gold rates differ for different purity of the metal. For example rates for 24 karat gold are different from those of 18 karat gold. Given below is a brief snapshot of the current gold prices in Karnataka.
- 22 karat gold rate
22 karat gold is widely used in making jewelry since it is more ductile and malleable as compared to the purest form 24 karat. Since 22 karat gold is just 92% gold and rest other metals, hence, the rate of 22 karat gold is lower than that of 24 karat. Currently 22 k gold in Karnataka costs Rs.2,361 per gram which equals Rs.23,610 per 10 grams and Rs,23,61,000 per Kilogram.
- 24 karat gold rate
Gold coins and gold bars are sold by retailers and wholesalers as the purest form of gold. These coins and bars are made up of 24 karat gold which is 99.99% pure. Banks are one of the chief sources of these coins and small bars. Banks offer their customers options to buy gold either online or by visiting any of the bank branches. Since making charges are levied on jewelry fashioned out of gold hence gold bars and coins are the standard form of saving via gold. As of August 2015, 24k gold in Karnataka cost Rs.2,522 per gram which translates to Rs.25,22,000 per kilogram.
Gold investment avenues in Karnataka
Gold is bought and sold in Karnataka as jewelry as well as an investment tool. Since gold prices have historically always been on the rise, the metal acts like a hedge for inflation in India. Gold is thus a favorite among households in Karnataka. Some of the most popular ways of obtaining gold are listed below.
- Retail buying of gold
Retail buying of gold in Karnataka can be done either via jewelry stores or via banks that offer pure gold coins. Both these methods are available both online as well as offline. Depending upon whether you are buying jewelry or gold coin or bar, the price may differ since the purity of gold may vary. Gold prices in India are in general so closely linked to market forces that they tend to fluctuate on a regular basis. Most customers are quick to buy it when the prices are low and a lot of these customers sell it when the prices soar and thus are able to make substantial profit.
- Wholesale buying of gold
Wholesale buying of gold is not permitted by the government except for smaller quantities. Gold trading markets are places where customers and retailers can buy gold in large quantities. Most gold merchants buy their gold for further processing, from these markets. Buying in bulk quantities offers these merchants better rates which they can utilize towards making profits when they sell their finished jewelry products.
