1. You have to take security risk and pay the locker charges for possessing gold jewellery whereas by investing the same amount in a fixed deposit you can increase your money.
2. The resale value of gold jewellery is very less except in cases when it is sold by the next generation i.e. after a very long period. You may hardly get 50% of your amount invested whether you purchase from corporate companies or the popular local jweller. The corporate one chagre very high percentages of the gold cost as making charges and taxes charged by the company are not refundable.
