  • SBI will calculate the net weight of jewelry to calculate the amount of loan against gold you can get. Always, try to choose jewelry which has minimum gems and stones. Most of the banks will reduce the weight of gems and stones from total weight of jewelry. SBI will rely on the report of his gold valuer to calculate the net weight. Higher the weight of gems and stones in jewelry, lower the net weight and value of jewelry which results in lower amount of jewel loan you can are eligible to get Further, SBI will not accept diamond jewelry if the gold used is of less than 18 carat purity. Most of the diamond jewelry is made in 16 carat to 18 carat gold and hence, will result in very low gold loan per gram.
  • Always try to get the maximum LTV on the value of gold. SBI is allowed by RBI to charge a maximum LTV of up to 75% to calculate the amount of gold loan you are eligible for.

ILLUSTRATION: The loan amount eligibility is decided on the basis of purity of gold, LTV and weight of gold. Suppose Mr. A and his two friends Mr. B and Mr. C own different amounts of gold with varying purity. Mr. A has 50 gram of gold with a purity of 22 carat. Mr. B has 60 gram of gold with a purity of 20 carat and Mr. C has 70 grams of gold with a purity or 22 carat. They approach SBI to avail a gold loan. The price applied to calculate their gold loan amount eligibility based on maximum LTV of 75% will vary by the purity of gold and hence, will result in varying gold loan eligibility.

Mr. A 50 22 Rs. 99,241
Mr. B 60 20 Rs. 1.08 Lakh
Mr. C 70 18 Rs. 1.14 Lakh
