The quality of the gold plated jewelry may differ, but the principle remains the same. Buying gold plated jewelry can be challenging for someone new as there are a few major factors to consider before buying gold plated jewelry.


Apart from that the gold jewelry has also been considered an investment, but is it actually true? Here are some parameters you should know about before investing in gold jewelry if you are hoping on big returns.

There has been a lot of unpredictability in the markets due to the prices fluctuating with increasing frequency.

Its Making Charges


The making charges are the additional costs that come with the fine gold jewelry.


The cost which goes into designing and producing gold jewelry ranges from anywhere between as low as 3% to as high as 25%.


Making charges depends on various factors such as intricacy of the design, whether it’s handmade or machine made.

Selling Gold Jewelry


One of the biggest demerits of owning gold, besides safety and storage, is that, when selling gold jewelry, the owner loses a lot of money due to the tax implications.


Sellers always receive a much lesser amount as compared to the original price paid at the time of buying the gold jewelry.


The resale value of gold decreases due to the jewelry breaking charges. Also the making charges are way too high with respect to buying gold jewelry as well.

As per the current scenario, keeping in mind the above demerits of investing in gold, it is advisable not to invest in gold.
