According to data released by the All Pakistan Gems and Jewellers Sarafa Association (APGJSA), the 10-gramme gold price reached Rs185,528 after experiencing a rise of Rs257 on the same day.


This surge in gold prices follows a recent decline on Tuesday, where the yellow metal in Pakistan had seen a decrease of Rs1,900 per tola.

The international gold rate, with a $20 premium, stood at $2,050 per ounce on Tuesday, marking an increase of $3 in the global market, as reported by the APGJSA.

Meanwhile, silver rates maintained stability in the local market at Rs2,660 per tola on the same day, indicating a lack of significant fluctuations in silver prices.
