Akshaya Tritiya is a Sanskrit term that means "everlasting, the never decreasing sensation of satisfaction, prosperity, and joy," and "Tritiya" means "third." Most people buy gold on this day since it is believed that buying gold on Akshaya Tritiya which is falling on 3rd May this year would bring them prosperity and fortune in the future. It is one of the most auspicious times of the year to buy gold & jewellery. As a result, many Indians buy gold jewellery or gold coins for themselves or as gifts.

Purchasing something as valuable as gold is an investment in itself, so make sure you check its purity and compare your prices. There are a few things you should remember. It should be noted that while this is one occasion when jewellers provide discounts on gold products, there are other essential factors to consider.

1) Verify the Hallmark

Before purchasing any gold jewellery, make sure to check the hallmark. When purchasing gold jewellery, it is critical to check for purity because this defines its genuine value. Every piece of hallmarked jewellery will contain a number, a BIS stamp, the karats, the hallmarking year (expressed alphabetically), the jeweller's identity mark, and the assay centre.

2) Gold Purity

Gold purity may be assessed in two ways: karat and fineness. 24 karat (KT) gold is the finest kind of gold, containing 24/24 parts gold. As an example, if your gold is 22KT, it contains 22 parts gold and 2 parts additional metals such as zinc or silver to make it more durable. Fineness, on the other hand, is the weight of the gold in relation to the overall weight, given in parts per 1,000. The quality of the 24KT gold is 999.9 parts per thousand.

3) Aim for the finest possible deal

To entice buyers, numerous jewellery makers provide steep reductions on making charges for a limited time. There are other similar deals available, so make sure to look into them all. You'll be surprised to learn that the price of each item of gold jewellery differs across stores. Before purchasing, conduct a brief assessment of the current market pricing, evaluate the various making charges and the discounts offered on them, and make an educated selection.

4) Is it an investment or jewellery

If you're wanting to buy gold exclusively for financial purposes, gold coins or bars may be a better option. Purchasing gold jewellery is typically seen as a secure investment, but careful consideration must be given to what to purchase and what to avoid. It is recommended that you choose something that would provide you with the best future returns.
