Gold price in Thrissur
Thrissur, the former capital of the Cochin Kingdom is a thriving city with a population of over 1.9 million people. Popularly known as the cultural capital of Kerala, Thrissur has played a key role in the history of the state, being home to royalty and artists of high calibre. A home to entrepreneurs, it is one of the richest places in South India, and a major hub for jewellery manufacture, with it contributing to most of the gold consumed in the state. The city accounts for over 70% of overall jewellery made in Kerala, providing a livelihood to over 2 lakh people, either directly or indirectly. Given its connection with gold, one can be sure that it accounts for a huge portion of the gold purchased in the state, regardless of the gold rates.
Gold rates in Thrissur could be cheaper than the rates in other cities, on account of the manufacturing industry being here, but the cost of raw gold is primarily determined after taking international prices into account.

The cost of gold in Thrissur changes periodically, with minor fluctuations witnessed on a regular basis. The amount an individual pays to purchase gold depends on the purity, with 18 or 22 karat gold being lighter on the pocket compared to 24 karat gold. The demand for gold also has an impact on prices, with low demand leading to lower rates while high demand leads to a rise in costs.
24 karat gold – 24 karat gold is perhaps the purest form of gold one can buy in Thrissur, with it being 99.9% pure gold. This purity makes it desirable as an investment source, offering individuals liquidity if they wish to sell it. Owing to its purity, it cannot be crafted into jewellery, which means that coins and bars are the only way to own it. Individuals looking to purchase 1 gram of 24 karat gold in Thrissur would end up paying Rs 2,974 (as of March 11, 2016), with prices expected to change over time. Looking at the last year, one can see that prices dropped in 2015, when a gram of 24 karat gold could’ve been purchased for as less as Rs 2,500. Since January 2016, prices have been on an upward climb and one can expect a further hike in rates.
22 karat gold – Containing 92% gold, 22 karat gold is a popular option when it comes to making jewellery. Given the fact that Thrissur is a major jewellery hub, most of the gold purchased or sold here is 22 karat. A gram of 22 karat gold costs Rs 2,780 in the city (as of March 11, 2016), closely following 24 karat rate trends. After a lull in 2015, prices have picked up, climbing by over Rs 400 in the first three months of 2016.
