Buying Gold This Year? Here’s What To Keep In Mind After Budget 2023

February 01, 2023 | by Sakshi Singh

Gold rates today surged to an all-time peak of ₹58,060 per 10 gm as Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman delivered the budget speech in the parliament. This increase was due to the government’s proposal to raise the import duty on silver doré, bars and articles, which was intended to bring it in line with gold and platinum duties. The Finance Minister also proposed to increase the duty on articles made therefrom. Further, the conversion of gold to e-gold or otherwise will not be treated as a transfer which means that it won’t be liable for any capital gains. This resulted in the rise of gold prices by 1% and that sure leaves us with questions about buying gold. So here are some tips for you to save money when buying gold.

Know the Carats

Gold jewellery comes in different carats, with 24 carats being the purest form of gold. The higher the carat, the more expensive the jewellery will be. If you’re on a budget, consider 18 or 14-carat gold, which is a good balance between price and quality.

Consider the Stones

Many gold jewellery pieces are set with precious stones such as diamonds, rubies, and emeralds. The cost of the jewellery will depend on the type and quality of the stones used. If you’re on a budget, consider alternative stones like cubic zirconia, which are less expensive but still beautiful. When evaluating the stones, consider the cut, colour, clarity, and carat weight to determine their quality and value.

Consider the Hallmark

Hallmarking is the process of certifying the purity of gold jewellery. A hallmark indicates the purity of the gold and the weight of the piece. When purchasing gold jewellery, look for a hallmark that indicates that the piece has been certified by a recognized authority. This will give you peace of mind that you’re getting a genuine product and help you avoid fraud and scams.

Choose a Reputable Retailer

When buying gold jewellery, it’s important to choose a reputable retailer. Look for a retailer with a good reputation, a wide range of products, and a knowledgeable staff. Consider the warranty and return policy of the retailer and make sure you understand the terms and conditions before making a purchase.
