New Delhi:  Snapping a two-day losing trend, both the precious metals, gold and silver, recovered sharply in the national capital on Tuesday with emergence of buying by stockists at existing lower levels for the ongoing marriage season.

While gold gained Rs 100 to Rs 28,890 per 10 gm, silver spurted by Rs 575 to Rs 56,175 per kg.

Traders said fresh buying by stockists at existing lower levels to meet the ongoing marriage season demand mainly helped both gold and silver prices to rebound.
