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.

The implementation of GST has particularly affected the prices of commodities like gold.

Effect of GST on Gold Prices

As per the new tax structure, the GST on gold is set at 3% for both finished and unfinished products, which will be paid by the end consumer.

Apart from this, the tax regime also levies an additional 5% on making charges of gold jewellery. The additional charges have upshot the price of gold as there were no making charges in the previous taxation system. This rate is, however, a revised version which was initially set at 18%. The initial GST on making charges would have affected the prices of the finished products massively since end-consumers had to bear all the expenses. However, the 3% GST, the 10% import duty, and 5% making charges have made the yellow metal’s price increase by 0.75%.

Why is Gold considered a Precious Metal?

If there was another indicator to measure wealth in the world, barring currency, it would be gold. It is one of the nine noble metals, but gold’s value in the economy surpasses that of its counterparts. But the exploration and extraction of gold is a slow-moving, laborious process.

However, this metal still has a readily available market across the globe, which increases its liquidity, thereby making it an ideal asset. Owners of gold articles have the freedom to convert them into cash with ease.

Moreover, gold is a luxury good, which means that people purchase it in larger quantities when their income rises. Therefore, this yellow metal generally exhibits a steady increase due to high demand and inadequate supply, especially in a country like India. Most free-market economies of the world use gold reserves to hedge against inflation. As a result, this metal possesses an intrinsic value in the global economy as well.
