Difference between KDM gold and Hallmark gold in Chennai

Before purchasing Gold, it is important for you to understand the real difference between KDM Gold and hallmarked Gold. In simple words, Gold is categorised into these two categories basis the purity and alloying of Gold. In its purest form (24K), Gold, is a soft, ductile and malleable form. Hence, to obtain the jewellery form, it is put in shape by soldering with another metal with a melting point lower than that of Gold making sure that only the solder metal melts and smoothly combines the pieces of Gold. Initially, cadmium was considered as the ideal solder metal due to its low melting point and liquidity. However, the use of cadmium as a solder metal was banned by the Bureau of Indian Standard (BIS) after it resulted in severe health problems like harmful skin allergies to goldsmiths and Gold artisans. Now, cadmium has been replaced by other metals such as zinc or copper, which has, in turn, resulted in minimal health risks in the industry.

Hallmark, on the other hand, is the certification of quality awarded to the gold by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). BIS assesses whether the gold meets and complies with the national as well as international fineness and purity standards. A hallmark gold is engraved with features including the BIS logo, purity level, logo of the assaying centre, year of certification and the logo of the retailer. Hence, it is advised to always purchase BIS certified hallmarked gold.
