A good way to splurge on yourself or a loved one during festive season is by gifting gold. It is a gift that only becomes more valuable as years go by. And if you do want to buy gold for yourself or to gift someone you know this Diwali, and you are planning to shop online, then you must be extra careful. Only go for recognized websites and apps and don’t just shop from anywhere.
A few must-knows before you buy gold online are checking if the gold used is 24k or not, whether or not does the product carry any Hallmark certification, what the making charges are, if there is a return or a buyback policy being offered, and whether the website is ready to provide you with a bill and a proper packaging.
There is a lot that you must keep in mind. And that is why, you must choose a website that is reliable. Here, we list down some websites that you can trust enough to buy gold from:
Tanishq is among the most trusted brands for buying gold in India. And that is why, one can have complete faith while shopping for gold at titan.co.in – which is Tanishq’s website that is meant for online shopping. It doesn’t matter what you are planning to buy – gold coins or jewellery – you would not have to worry yourself about it being adulterated.
Caratlane is both a website and an app. ‘A Tanishq partnership’, Caratlane was the website that started online shopping for jewellery in India. Tanishq’s association definitely makes us trust the app enough to shop from it and its ‘Try at home’ option is something we really like. In order for you to see the jewellery in person before buying, officials from the company visit your home at a time when it is convenient for you with the items that you have selected. So you can try it before you pay for it.
BlueStone is a website and an app too, and it is one among those startups that have managed to secure a funding from that former chairman of Tata Sons, Ratan Tata. You can buy jewellery as well as gold coins on the app and like Caratlane, there is an option of trying at home too.
You can head to the website of PC Jewellers, which is a very popular jewellery brand in India to shop for gold. This website is particularly helpful if you need the piece of jewellery or gold coins delivered to you on the same day. You can go to the website’s ‘Same Day delivery’ section and choose from the items on which it is applicable.
Paytm also offers its users the option of buying gold from its app. However, you can only buy for gold coins on the app, so don’t go looking for jewellery. Paytm further gives its users a cashback on most of these gold coins so it’s easy to call it a good place to shop for gold if you are looking for deals too. But no matter where you buy gold from, do keep in mid the points we told you to consider to make the purchase.
