Gold desires fulfilled

Finally she got her choice of ornaments

20221125_121045.jpg

Getting your choice of ornament is luck and finally she got what she wanted at Malabar Gold, Patia. Friday is our lucky day, and that is why we choose this Friday to go for the purchase. She was very much interested to buy it during Dhanteras (posted here, but then she returned disappointed because she was looking for a specific type of Necklace that comes with gem stones. Most of the time we buy something as we go with a mindset to buy it, but she preferred to return instead. As the marriage season is going on, we decided to go to the nearest Malabar Gold store, Patia and try her luck.

And the new collections that have come in, did not disappoint her - she loved this one.

But wait, this was not the only one. Since long she was asking me to exchange her old necklace, and I was not willing because, it's always a loss to exchange GOLD. You pay the making charge and when you exchange, they pay you in current gold price, if its 22 crt gold. And you again pay the making charge on new ornaments. So you always loose that amount, which is big. But considering her desire to try these new designs, this time I allowed her to exchange her old necklace. If she does not wear what she has, then its useless. Another important factor was that Malabar Gold has a fair evaluation of old gold for exchange and also have a fair price policy which allows for transparent and reasonable pricing of products. So before going for the exchange , they spent a good amount of time to finalize their choice of ornaments.

One of their staff Sasmita Sahu, was very patient to not only assist them to find out what they wanted, but very very helpful to take us through the entire purchase and exchange process, admire her patience. The exchange process has changed significantly in recent times and is very transparent. They now have a digital scanner ( like X-ray machine), which can scan the gold and tell what carat it is.

20221125_132042.jpg

It's pretty costly , but as you can see, it can exactly evaluate your old gold quality and guarantee a fair price. In older days they would reserve some percentage, that would pinch your pocket. Now that we have such niche technology, we always get back the right price of our old gold.

20221125_133216.jpg

This was her old Necklace - a bit traditional and she could wear only in occasions like marriage etc. So she wanted something modern and latest. Though they scanned the gold, their next step in exchange is to melt it at 900 °C and make it a perfect biscuit of gold for exchange, removing any impurities, so that its not a loss to them as well. So this is the last appearance of this necklace before it went to RIP. She did give some of her other gold jewelries as well, luckily all of them came out 22 carat.

20221125_133534.jpg

This melting machine is also pretty costly and the price is based on capacity. But its good to see such niche machines being available that can melt the gold in 5 minutes, which guarantees a fair exchange price to you. And finally it came like this - a tiny gold biscuit.

He was trying to understand the whole process and follow up to make sure, everything is calculated right - something that will come in his future use.

20221125_134151.jpg

And then as we moved to the final billing process, he went to the McDonalds store that is just beside this show room and enjoyed some vegetarian bites.

Here is what they brought - the entire collection of purchases.

And before coming back happily, Sasmita offered a nice gift as well - she waited till this long and went for lunch only after we came out - pretty dedicated to her job.

I watched the melting process with keen interest. It's so amazing how something so epic can become a small lump in only five minutes. Anyways I know nothing about gold but it seems to me like you can pretty much get value for anything old with this shop right here. Great to see the family shopping once more again.

Yes, I was also surprised with these new techniques being available. Back in old days, they would rob the gold with a stone and calculate 2 carat less than the actual just to make sure they never loose. But its a loss to the customer. Technology is changing things for betterment.

Wonderful. Indeed very transparent, Everything is executed in front of your eyes. And 5 mins is super fast compared what traditional method we followed in the previous decade.

I was overwhelmed to see such advancement in the exchange process - flawless. They weighed before the melting and the scanner showed everything as 22 carat and the biscuit exactly matched the weight - a very tiny impurities in milligrams.

It is so so so amazing. How sophistication the machinery has made the methods. In may country, I haven't seen anything like the melting and scanning machine so far. We have to trust the jeweller and sometimes they deceit badly.

Should I say something about the necklace. The older one looked more beautiful to me 🤓. Lol. But then, it is the choice of the wearer what to wear.

I am sure you would be happy seeing her happy. God bless your family.

Also, @sanjeevm sir, It's long time I didn’t hear anything about your father. How is he? Has the Alzhimer stopped at some stage?

The old one was beautiful, not used often because, it was more of a traditional design that can be used in marriages etc. So she wanted something that she can wear everywhere. And even I did not see anything like this melting and scanning earlier - technology is doing the betterment.

Dad is doing good - he has early dementia, not gone to Alzhimer stage. I often go in the week ends, just that I do not post a lot now.

Yeah! These days matching stuff is more in trend. By having some pearls and beads in the necklace it becomes.

It's good to know that your father isn't in that bad a condition. I wish him good health. Alzhimer is a great pain for the patient and the caretakers. I wish he may never reach to such a state.

Gold desires were fulfilled because your wife had shown willingness to wait. She did not get tempted by the festive occasion. So patience has rewarded her with the best choice. I also love contemporary design over the traditional ones.

Very interesting post. Seeing how the gold is melted down and scanned to see how pure it's was cool. This new technology takes all of the guesswork out of the equation.

Your wife sure looked very happy after buying what she had her heart set on.

There's nothing like a good salesperson that is willing to go the extra mile to make sure the customer is happy.

Have a wonderful day my friend.

Technology is definitely changing for improvement - earlier, it was the customer who was at loss, but it was amazing to see the weight remains exactly same as matched by the scanner.

They measured the weight before, did scan and the scanner told, there was no impurity, so ideally after melt, it should come same weight. And it was exactly same with only 0. 0011 milligrams in difference - I was amazed to see the accuracy.

How nice to read this kind of publications and learn more about other cultures. All the accessories looked beautiful to me so I can't imagine how she felt having to choose from so many beautiful options. I think she went for the right one because they look understated, feminine and elegant. Kudos to you. A hug from Venezuela.

I had no idea it was so advanced in jewelry shops! That was amazing and so useful for their business! Your wife's piece that was traded in was beautiful. Traditional, yes, but, do they even make pieces like that anymore? Very nice.

However, the new piece is stunning in an updated way. I really like it and I can see on her face that she is pleased with it too! You are a good man, making the wife happy like that. :) May she get many years of pleasure from it.

I am impressed with the dedication of the woman waiting on you, taking you through the entire process. I am sure this is a well-liked jeweler!

I enjoy learning about the world and how it is to live in your corner of it, and if there are solutions to making it better in any way. I find it interesting to compare, not by the world's standards, but, by how we find the quality of our life with different indicators than the world does. It is not always about the wealth in money, sometimes money means very little when there is no value behind it. You cannot buy health although you can take care of what you have. Being educated isn't always about schooling, but acquiring knowledge and using it for the better good and happiness of the society you are living in. It is with great pleasure that I read through this and all of the posts, with these thoughts in mind.

Don't miss the small things in your life, they usually make no noise but can be indicators of bigger things. I enjoy learning more about you and hope you feel the same, that is why I find it important to take the time to read a couple of #MarketFriday posts and leave a genuine comment. It is important for a community to do this, learning about others, and getting to know each other. The fun is in getting to know people and making a positive contribution to community life. All this fun and money too. What is not to love? That is one of the reasons I joined Hive. How about you? :) I leave you with the guidelines. I hope you are having an amazing week!


Fridays are all about the #MarketFriday Challenge! Looking to take part in it? Here is how:


Rules of the Road to Join #MarketFriday!


  1. Go to the market, or anywhere that you pay money for a service. It can be a movie, an auction, or even a museum. Wherever money is exchanged for a service or product.
    Take pictures! Be creative!
  2. Tell us a little bit about the market or the event. What brought you there? What did you buy? How much did it cost? Was it expensive? Did it go up or down? A scroll of pictures with few words doesn't usually work.
  3. Post the pictures. Of course, you should tell a little bit about the ones you post, it is too difficult to guess about some.
  4. Use the MarketFriday Community Platform to post (#hive-196308) This is not required but appreciated.
    PLEASE Drop the link into the MarketFriday comment section so I can find it!!
  5. Following me and reblogging the post would be appreciated, but not a rule, more vision for more views on the #MarketFriday posts!
    7. You must put #MarketFriday by @dswigle somewhere on your post.

As always, please remember! #MarketFriday loves you!
