Selling Gold Jewellery

It’s  a common practice in India that people tend to monetize their gold jewellery in dire needs of cash.

In India, we have lot of options available to buy any ornaments and same when it comes to pledge our gold, but when the situation arise to sell your scraps for any reason, may be to fund your children fee, buy a new flat/plot or for buying new ornaments the available options are very limited and are not transparent. Banks sell the gold bullion, bars or coins to individuals but they never buy back from them. So people have no choice but to sell their gold to the craftsmen or jewel smith. They take the advantage of situation and deduct the hefty amount as wastage charge, melting charge, etc from customers and pay maximum 60-65% of gold value which is not worth  for customers.

It is observed that money en-cashed on selling gold leads to disappointment if you do not research following things properly before selling gold

PURCHASE BILL (INVOICE)

A genuine jeweller always asks you to produce the original bill while selling the gold. It helps you to avoid conflict of interest as purity of gold is clearly mentioned in the bill. It is impossible for the jewellers to deny as the details of purchased gold would be clearly stated in the original invoice.

WORTH OF GOLD

Take the quotes of your gold from multiple jewellers before selling. Since there are no proper standardised method to determine the selling price by jewellers. It would be good to take the quote from at least three to four jewellers before disposing off and compare which one is offering the best value for your ornaments.

If your ornaments are 916 hallmarked then it is confirmed that your gold has 91.6% gold and rest is mixed with alloy to make the ornaments. If the gold has no hallmark then jewellers can manipulate you for low purity; to avoid these embarrassment, you can visit any store which has purity checking carat meter machine to get purity certificate.
