Gold Price in Pune
Pune has transformed itself from an educational hub to a cosmopolitan city in the last few years and is now considered as an excellent destination for safe investments. Gold, has been the preferred choice of investment in India regardless of the prevailing gold rate, making it a commodity which is always in demand. Pune boasts of a qualified, professional crowd, one which has the money and wisdom to invest in gold.
With no gold mine in Pune, residents depend on gold supplied from other cities in India and exported gold to cater to their needs. This would mean that the gold here is a bit more expensive compared to places which produce gold. Gold rates change on a daily basis, keeping into account world gold rates and market trends.
Gold can be bought in either the 22 Karat form or the 24 Karat form and the gold rates vary depending on the purity and quantity of gold present in an item. 22 karat gold is about 92% pure, making it less expensive than 24 karat gold, which is 99.99% pure.

Gold is often considered as a safe investment as the risk factor involved in this is very less and there is always a demand for it. There are plenty of ways to invest in gold, depending on the money at hand and the needs.
Jewelry – Indians and residents of Pune in particular love their jewelry and while most might not view buying jewelry as an investment it could be a worthy asset in times of need. The drawback of investing in jewelry is that we fail to factor in wastage and making charges, which may lower the actual value of gold. Resale of jewelry might however not fetch market value.
Bullion Bars – Gold bullion bars can be an investment option for those with large investment capacities. The bars generally weigh close to 1 kg and have high purity, being about 99.5% pure and are considered a good option for those who can afford them. High net worth individuals in Pune have woken up to gold bars as an investment and the city has seen a slow growth in them.
Bullion coins – These coins are much cheaper than bars and can be an investment option for people who are looking to spend less. Pune is home to a vast upper middle class society and gold coins can be a perfect investment option for them. These coins are easy to sell and provide a source for liquid assets.
Allocated Gold Accounts – Investing in gold through allocated gold accounts can be a smart option for those who wish to own gold but are not keen to keep it with them. Banks which offer this account would keep the gold with them and it can be accessed by the owner when needed.
Investments in gold act as a safety valve against inflation, as it has good resale value and can be a life-saver in case of emergencies.
24 karat gold – The cost of 24 karat gold in Pune is around Rs 2720 per gram as of June 2015. The rate has seen a minimal decline in the last 12 month, with prices hovering around the Rs 2800 mark, having peaked at Rs 2900 about 6 months ago.
22 karat gold – One gram of 22 karat gold in Pune costs around Rs 2530, as of June 2015. The cost has seen extremes in the last year, with prices going as high as Rs 2700 and falling to a low of Rs 2400. The current market rate makes it the right time to invest in gold, with gold rates expected to go up in the future.
Most of the gold purchased in Pune is through the established players, with pan India presence. Some of the big names in Pune are KP Gems World, Krishna Jewellers, VS Waikar and Sons, Sagar Jewellers and Tikhe Saraf. Gold can be purchased at the smaller stores across town too, with stores catering to individual needs and demands.
