Ministry of Commerce and Industry inspectors have discovered fraud of 3,940 kilograms of gold valued at KD 50,000 (USD 165,000) at a gold store in Al-Rai district. The case was later referred to prosecution.

The Ministry added in a statement Tuesday that the forged items were gold jewelry items of Indian precision.

Cavities in the gold jewelry have been filled with cheap materials in order to increase their weight and sell them as pure gold.

The ministry will take all needed procedures against the forgers, who have already been referred to the competent authorities, the statement added.

The ministry will increase inspection of gold and jewelry markets to verify validity and condition of scales and percentage of precious stones engraved with the items displayed for sale. The Ministry is supervising all the precious metals and stones, whether those displayed at the stores or produced in factories locally or coming from abroad, it said.

It will penalize counterfeiters to protect the consumers, the statement concluded.

I think the black material inside hollow parts is called laakh and is filled while preparing bigger, heavy necklaces or bangles to protect hollow part from getting ruptured or damage. The actual gold weight is excluding this black material weight so it seems Arab may have mistaken it...Any ways the hollow part cannot be filled with actual gold or else purchasing gold will be dreams.

Dear gold customers, always buy gold biscuit which is 24 crt gold from authorized agent. if you are not going to wear it, then y should you buy ornaments and keep in your safe locker? after couple of years you will go and exchange it for some functions at home, during this time, when you go to sell, jwelery people will say 100 reasons and reduce the price.

Shame! The rich want to become richer at the cost of the poor customers. What about the stamp? We buy the gold believing on the stamp by the Ministry officials. Is the gold stamped without checking its purity?

This is ridiculous. Punish these culprits so that no Jewelers will dare to repeat the same in future. I applaud the Inspection team who had done a good job to protect the customers.

STRICT ACTION SHOULD BE TAKEN AGAINST THEM AND I APPLAUD THE INSPECTION TEAM WHO HAVE CAUGHT THESE PEOPLES MAKING CUSTOMERS FOOL. DONT LEAVE THEM HAVE PENALTY ON THEM AND SEVERE PUNISHMENT TO RESTORE THE CONFIDENCE OF CUSTOMERS IN KUWAIT WHO USED TO BUY GOLD BLINDLY WITHOUT CHECKING THEIR QUALITY AND QUANTITY DUE TO HAVE FAITH IN GOVT AGENCIES.
