How is Gold’s purity determined?

Gold is one of the most precious metals that do not corrode with time. Thus, from time immemorial, gold has been used to make jewellery and as a substitute to currency. Therefore, it is imperative to assess the gold’s purity to derive its actual value.

Following are some of the most commonly used methods to determine gold’s purity.

  • Karat or “K” is considered as one of the gold purity units. There are 0 to 24 grades on this Karat system, and each number denotes the gold purity of varying items. One can also convert this Karat to a percentage by dividing the Karat number by 24 and then multiplying it by 100. Nevertheless, 24K gold is considered to be the purest form of gold.
  • Gold merchants, however, use different techniques to measure gold purity. They either use traditional acid test where the gold of different purity are dipped into nitric acid and then matched with known K-labelled samples. Alternatively, they also use a digital gold tester that shows the most accurate result.
  • The buyers, nevertheless, can refer to the hallmark that is tattooed in the inner portion of any gold article. It rightly shows the purity, Karat weight, etc., of that particular gold article.

Individuals need to check gold purity before buying or selling.

KDM vs Hallmark gold - What's the difference?

1) Hallmark Gold: Hallmark gold is the type of gold upon which, tests are conducted at assaying centers and is approved for sale by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). Hallmark gold is available in four varieties being 23 Karat, 22 Karat, 21 Karat, and 18 Karat.

2) KDM Gold: KDM gold is a type of gold made combining 8% cadmium with 92% gold. Not only does this tamper with the purity of gold, but it also has certain health risks associated with it because of which the production of this gold has been terminated. 

How to calculate old gold jewellery price?

Indians usually attach a lot of sentimental value to their gold. Apart from jewelry, gold s used for several other purposes such as investment, hedging, or for availing an instant loan.

2) The assaying center presents the purity of the gold in terms of Karat or as a percentage figure.

3) If you wish to calculate the value of your gold using the 

  1. a) Karat purity method: Multiply the gold’s weight, purity, and gold rate and divide it by 24.

Effect of GST on Gold Prices.

GST or Goods and Services Tax came into effect on 1st July 2017 by subsuming the repetitive tax structure of the previous regime and bringing transparency and accountability in the taxation system.

The implementation of this new tax regime has left a considerable effect on the prices of several commodities, of which gold accrues enormous importance due to its national and international demand.

Under the new tax regime, the GST on gold was fixed at 3% with an additional 8% tax on the making charges and import duty of 10%. Later, the making charges tax was revised and reduced to 5%. As a whole, the yellow metal has become expensive by 0.75% in the post-GST era.

A primary reason that accounts for the rising gold price is 10% import duty. However, traders have managed to evade that by importing gold from countries like South Korea, with which India shares the Free Trade Agreement.
