Silver is considered very auspicious in India. It is widely used for making jewellery and divine puja articles for households. It comes next to gold in domestic demand. Silver is easily available in various outlets. Investments in silver are also made through silver coins, silver bullion bars, Future Exchanges and Silver ETFs (in the US Market).
The bullion market has seen considerable growth, in spite of the current economic slug in India and around the world. Bullions are always considered to be good investments that offer wealth appreciation.
The majority of the silver produced in India is a by-product of zinc mining in northern India. In addition to domestic mine production, silver in India is also extracted from the processing of imported materials, such as copper concentrate, lead-zinc concentrates and doré, at India's numerous gold refineries.
There are different ways to invest in silver. Though the majority of consumption is in the form of jewellery and household antiquities, consumers are slowly opening up to Silver ETFs and Futures Exchange. Silver has time and again proved its credibility in the futures market, earning steady gains to its investors.
Buy Silver Jewellery and Household Objects
There is no dearth of jewellery shops in Andhra Pradesh. Silver jewellery and household objects are commonly sold in almost all jewellery shops here. Silver jewellery is very commonly worn by both women and men in India. Children are especially adorned with silver jewellery like anklets, bracelets and earrings.
Silver is not very expensive and hence called ‘The poor man’s gold’. So, silver jewellery are quite affordable and not as expensive as gold or platinum jewellery. They are easy to design and hence come in many attractive designs. Owing to their affordability, people prefer silver for many of their jewellery items.
The disadvantage of buying silver jewellery is the high making charges and very low resale rate for your old silver items. This results in considerable loss when you want to sell or exchange your old silver jewellery or items.
Invest in Silver Coins
Silver is also considered a very good gifting item. Indians are very particular about gifting for special occasions in one’s life. Be it a birthday, wedding, housewarming ceremony, festivals, corporate gifting and many more, silver coins are one of the most sought out gifting options for any of the above instances. Silver coins are also easily available, just like silver jewellery or other items. It can be bought at any of the jewellery stores. Certified and assayed silver coins can also be bought from post offices and banks.
Though Silver Coins are an attractive gift option, they too are not beneficial when you go to resell them or convert them into jewellery. A certain amount shall be deducted as wastage and you have to pay making charges on the items you want to purchase. So, silver coins are not a very attractive investment option for many.
Silver Futures Exchange
A Silver Futures is a legally binding agreement that agrees for delivery of silver at a pre-agreed upon price in the future. A futures exchange agreement is drawn on the quantity, quality, time, and place of delivery, only the price is variable. Futures contracts typically trade on an exchange, where one party agrees to buy a given quantity of securities or a commodity, and take delivery on a certain date.
Silver Futures are traded on the MCX. India's first listed exchange, The Multi Commodity Exchange of India Limited (MCX), is a state-of-the-art exchange of commodity derivatives that facilitates online trading of exchanges of commodity derivatives, providing a forum for market discovery and risk management.
There aren’t any Silver ETF schemes in India. Investors can opt for Silver ETFs listed on the US Market. They will require a broking account for international stock markets or take the assistance of stock brokers dealing in International Stock Markets.
The silver market is very different from the gold market in India. With regards to gold, where demand mainly comes from jewellery demand and investment demand, demand and supply economy for silver are slightly different. Almost 85% of the silver supply is from silver mines. The 15% balance comes from scrap recycling, which is a big source of silver.
Silver has significant industrial uses and it can be extracted from them once these goods outlive their usefulness. On the demand side, there is an equal separation between applications for jewellery and industrial applications. For example, silver is commonly used in industries such as electrical devices, electronic components, photographic applications, solar cells and for soldering purposes.
As we have seen before, the price of silver in India is influenced by the global price of silver. It is therefore instructive to consider the effects of silver prices globally and in India.
Silver reserves are clustered in countries such as Australia, Bolivia, Mexico and Kazakhstan. As a result, supply shortages in either of these main mines may have the effect of driving up silver prices, as silver appears to be very vulnerable to market disruptions.
On the demand side, global inflation, higher supply and new manufacturing plants will drive up prices due to a surge in demand. This is attributed much to the fact that the market for silver already exceeds availability.
Lastly, the spot price of silver also has an influence on the trading bets on silver. If sellers are too long on the stock, they help to develop a price limit, whereas too much of the net shorts on the stock tend to create a floor for the price of silver.
Once you have decided to buy silver or invest in silver, it is prudent to spend some time in researching the market. It will help you learn about the recent price trend of Silver to make an informed decision. Since the silver rate is highly volatile, one needs to keep a close watch to invest on the right day. Here are some pointers to help you make a decision while investing in silver;

Decide on what sort of investment you are trying to take, so that you have a clearer idea of the pluses and minuses.
Certification Check: The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) launched silver markings in 2005. There are several grades of silver purity, 9999 being of the highest fineness. The silver and silver alloys are stamped with the regular markings of the BIS-Recognized Testing and Hallmarking Centres. Silver bears 5 marks, including
Online Purchase Options: There are a number of online retailers currently selling silver of varying purities.
