    Taking a gold loan is a much better proposition in terms of interest rates since it offers much lower rates than conventional personal loans. Thus, saving some precious hard-earned money for the customer. On average, you will get as much as 75% of pledged gold’s value as the mortgage amount from Shriram City Gold Loan plans. Till now, we only discussed the benefits and use cases of pledging gold/silver jewellery. But in this article, we will also shed some much-needed light on the needs and processes involved with releasing a part of the pledged gold.

    What is the releasing of pledged gold?

    We already discussed how to pledge gold and how to get a mortgage against it. Shriram City Gold Loan plans provide some crucial benefits and offer aggressive interest rates. Well, releasing gold is the opposite process. You have to ‘buy’ the gold back from the bank/pawnshop/financier at market price.

    Why should you release your gold? 

    • Interest rate increases over time

    The interest rates on mortgages against jewellery tend to increase over some time. Thus, making it difficult for most people to buy back their pledged gold after a fair amount of time. In most cases, people lose their hard-earned money during this process. So, time is a crucial factor here.

    • Saving something for future

    It is always a good thing to save some of your precious property for yourself. The property here, being the pledged gold. For example, you will never want to give up whatever property you have at one go. It is always a good practice to save a little for the future. In this case, you will benefit by releasing some of your jewellery. If you can buy back the jewellery, then you will have something to start with again. You can again invest or deposit that jewellery for something in the future.

    • Unfair price of gold

    Sometimes the jewellery shops tend to give you lower value for your gold, and you cannot purchase your gold at that price. It must not happen as you should always try to get the right price for your gold. If the interest rates or the mortgage amount percentage is not good for you, you should release your gold and pledge it anywhere else.
