Turning jewelry into cash has always been around with pawn shops and jewelry shops willing to offer you cash for your unused, broken or unwanted gold jewelry. There are a lot of options out there to earn extra income but I recently had the opportunity to check out what a client of mine had to offer in The Gold Buying Girl. Cessna Foster is out of Houston and she is a Gold Buying Girl Independent Gold Buyer.
The Gold Buying Girl
The Gold Buying Girl is similar to a direct selling company that does home parties. The Gold Buying Girl offers home parties, private appraisal services and fundraisers. It can be done in the safe and comfortable surroundings of your home or your business. They pay more for your gold because they are not paying for the rent or overhead costs associated with pawn shops and mall jewelry store locations. The price of gold has increased to close to $1000 an ounce in recent years and while the price of gold can be volatile, if you have been holding on to unwanted gold for the past few years, it’s best to get the most money for them. Amy Robinette is the Founder and CEO.
Why you should sell your jewelry at a Gold Buying Girl Party?
Going to a pawn shop or a jewelry store can be a very intimidating process. With Gold Buying Girl it’s fun, safe and easy. The Gold Buying Girl consultants, like Cessna Foster, are licensed and use only LFT -Legal For Trade scales and state of the art technology to assay your gold.
Bring in your gold, silver or platinum to a Gold Buying Girl party and have fun. The consultant will keep everything confidential and give you a no obligation offer. Then you can decide if that’s the price you want. Gold Buying Girl does a fantastic job of researching what area pawn shops and brokers are offering and strive to offer a higher price.
The benefits of hosting a Gold Buying Girl Jewelry Party
Everyone that takes advantage of the offers and fulfills the requirements gets paid.
Hostesses – Hostesses can earn money by receiving 10% of the amount that Gold Buying Girl purchases from friends that attend. With gold prices hovering around $1000 an ounce, if partygoers bring in 5 ounces worth that’s about $5,000. Hostesses can get 10% of that and easily pocket $500 – Just for hosting a party. For a limited time through May 31, 2013, get an extra $200 if you can get 10 participants OR $2500 minimum for your party total. Check out the details here!
Referral Fees – You receive a referral fee from every friend that books a party from your party. Referral fees can be anywhere from $25, $50, $75 or $100. As an example, if three friends book a party that’s up to $300 or more depending upon their party totals.
Guests – If you attend a party then you can get paid for your unwanted gold, silver or platinum. Gold is paid by the weight. The Gold Buying Girl will buy any of your unwanted, broken, or mismatched yellow, white, pink or rose gold jewelry. They will buy anything that is 10k, 14k, 18k, 22k or 24K. If you happen to have gold and silver coins, flatware, candle sticks, serving pieces. You can also look for items such as old charms, class rings, sorority pins and service awards. If it’s gold, silver or platinum they will make you an offer.
So just think about it! If you hosted a party that brought in a minimum of $2500 and referred three friends you could get $550 for doing nothing but having a blast. If you have jewelry of your own, you can add on to that amount. Remember nothing feels better than getting rid of ex husband jewelry! This is such a great deal!
What if I don’t want to host a party?
Gold Buying Girl allows you to mail in your gold or to book a private appointment. Either way they will help you get the most that you can for your precious metals.
How can you tell if your items are real gold?
The first thing they do is the magnet test. By running a magnet over jewelry they can tell right away. The going further they do an acid test. The gold item is scratched on a test stone (leaving a streak from the item on the stone) and then a small drop of a strong acid, (typically nitric acid)is placed onto the streak. Base metals fizz or bubble (and typically turn a bright green color) when they come into contact with the acid, while precious metals are unaffected. The acid test is thus decisive, immediate, cheap, and simple. It’s also discreet. Do you know how embarrassing it is to find out that your engagement ring from your ex husband was not real? Yes that really did happen to me, so by having them do the test in your home, you save yourself the embarrassment of being told that news at the counter of the pawn shop. I guess that makes sense why he’s my ex husband now.
