Who are My Gold Party
Jonathan Thomas comes from a family of jewelers and, at the beginning of the year, he and his business partner January Thomas, launched My Gold Party.com, a company that helps arrange Tupperware-style parties for people keen to sell unwanted gold items. Business has been brisk, he says "They bring their gold and they can walk away with a check." My Gold Party is based in Saint Clair Shores, MI 48080.
This is a little different to the usual scrap gold dealer in that it is run on the "party system". People are probably more familiar with jewelry parties except in this case one is not buying, one is selling!
My Gold Party will buy the gold from you and it is sent to H & S Refinery for processing.
How My Gold Party Works
This is more of a business activity for someone who wishes to participate. Firstly you apply for a Kit, which will cost you around 700USD.
The My Gold Party Kit consists of a book with instructions, charts and so forth, a jewelers loupe to inspect the gold, A scale to weigh it and a machine to test and find out the karat of the gold.
The Gold Book goes into detail about running a scrap gold business. Basically you host gold parties. At the parties, using the scales, gold tester and loupe, you evaluate the value of the scrap gold offered to you and you offer a price to the person and pay them for the scrap gold.
Chapters in the book provided give an indication of the instructions provided.
About Gold PartiesYou would also need to have some cash reserve so that you can pay people who sell you their scrap gold. It is advised that you pay the person 75% of the value of their scrap gold based on the days spot price. You keep 10 percent and My Gold Party and the refinery get to keep 15 percent.
