New Delhi: Gold prices Thursday rose by Rs 70 to Rs 33,330 per 10 gram in the national capital on the back of fresh buying from jewellers, according to the All India Sarafa Association.

Tracking gold, silver also gained by Rs 50 to Rs 38,250 per kg on more offtake by industrial units and coin makers.
