When buying jewelry, take special care of hallmarks. Hallmarking guarantees that the item sold by the shopkeeper to the customer is of the same carat as the jewellery. Hallmarking is done under the Bureau of Indian Standards Act.
Hallmarking is the precise determination and official record of the proportionate content of that metal in precious metal materials. Hallmarking protects the interests of the buyers by helping them to identify the genuine and counterfeit gold. Gold and silver prices fluctuate constantly. Apart from jewellery, people buy gold and silver for investment purposes. When demand increases, the price of gold and silver increases.
India imports most of its gold from abroad. Therefore, global movements and fluctuations in the price of rupee against the dollar have an impact on gold and silver prices. India is the largest gold importer in the world. Gold is imported in large quantities from abroad to meet the demand of the jewelery industry. About 800-900 tonnes of gold is imported into India in a year.
