Silver Price in Patna
Popularly referred to as ‘poor man’s gold’, silver or precious white metal is highly sought-after by millions across India including Patna. Silver is bought in many forms from silverware and jewellery to artifacts and articles associated with rituals in Patna. Many consumers in Patna present silver gift articles during weddings given that the precious metal is believed to bring in good luck.
While the upper middle-class and affluent sections of society in Patna may have the resources to buy the yellow metal, the middle-class and lower middle-class segments seek the precious metal as a valuable asset. Many small investors in Patna buy silver given that it is more accessible and affordable than the yellow metal.
