However, silver recovered by Rs 130 to Rs 35,330 per kg on scattered buying by industrial units and coin makers.
Bullion traders said easing demand from jewellers and retailers at prevailing levels mainly kept pressure on gold prices. They said, however, firm global trend where gold gained on weakness in the dollar, capped the fall.
Globally, gold climbed 0.4 percent to USD 1,125.48 an ounce and silver rose 0.1 percent to USD 14.80 an ounce after advancing 2 percent yesterday in Singapore.
The rupee strengthening against the dollar, making imports cheaper, also influenced gold prices, they added.
Sovereign also lost Rs 100 at Rs 22,200 per piece of eight gram.
On the other hand, silver ready recovered by Rs 130 to Rs 35,330 per kg and weekly-based delivery by Rs 700 to Rs 35,800 per kg speculative buying.
Meanwhile, silver coins continued to be asked at previous level of Rs 51,000 for buying and Rs 52,000 for selling of 100 pieces.
