Why Golden Girls®?
The high price of gold is prompting people across the nation to sell their old jewelry. So why choose Golden Girls?
Why not a traditional jewelry store?
The money you are offered at a jewelry store isn’t typically the highest you could receive. In fact, it’s often directly tied to what you may be purchasing at the store. However, since the overall experience is convenient, you may feel encouraged to accept less money than you could get elsewhere.
Why not a mail-order service?
There’s a growing trend to sell unwanted jewelry to mail-order businesses that are tied directly to precious metal refineries. These companies are not regulated by any local laws, can legally advertise nationally, and can buy gold from any location. With these companies, you send away your jewelry via certified, insured mail. Within a few days, you receive an offer followed by a check for the appraised value for your jewelry. Prices are generally fair, but trust issues may arise when sending valuables to an obscure company that you never interact with in person.
Why not a pawn shop?
When you sell to a pawn shop, you’re not actually selling your pieces. Instead, you use them as collateral on a cash advance. Pawn shops are typically for people who need cash fast and are willing to accept a lower price in exchange for money quickly. Not everyone feels comfortable in a pawn shop setting.
So again, why Golden Girls?
Golden Girls takes the convenient aspects from other gold-buying entities and transforms them into a uniquely rewarding experience. With Golden Girls, you can sell your gold at a good price, and sit face-to-face with your Buyer in a comfortable environment. At a Golden Girls party, you also enjoy a delightful experience and the opportunity to help your community: Catch up with old friends, make new connections, and maintain complete control over your buying experience. You keep possession of your valuables throughout the evaluation and assessment process—until you decide to sell your gold, silver, or platinum. No pressure!
We also donate a percentage of all proceeds from the items purchased at each party to charity. And party hostesses earn 10% of the value purchased at each party—if the hostess chooses to donate her earnings to the charity, Golden Girls donates even more!
Will I have to buy something at the party?
Absolutely not! In fact, there’s nothing available for purchase at a Golden Girls Party. Simply bring your items to sell. Our trained experts will help you determine the value of your gold, silver, and platinum.
Why would I want to participate in a Buying Party?
A Golden Girls party is not only a time to share with friends, but it’s also a way to get rid of your old, broken, or unwanted jewelry by selling it to our licensed and qualified Buyers. When you sell with Golden Girls, we will pay you directly.
Best of all, Golden Girls is committed to improving local communities. We encourage the hostess at each party to choose her favorite charity, and then we donate a portion of the party proceeds to the charity of her choice.
Can I earn money at a Buying Party?
Yes. There are several ways to earn money at a Golden Girls Buying Party. If you are the hostess, you receive a portion of the certified precious metals purchased (10%). You can keep the money, share the money, or contribute some or all of your earnings to a favorite charity. Also, for every friend that books a party from your party, you will receive the Golden Girls referral fee—up to $50. For example, if three friends book a party, that’s up to $150 more in your pocket!
If you are a guest, you can earn money by selling your unwanted gold, silver, or platinum—our licensed Buyer will pay you directly.
How does the Buyer know what my jewelry is worth?
The Golden Girls certified Buyers are trained professionals using the latest technology to assess, measure and verify the items they purchase. This information is used to establish value using current secondary market prices.
How much of the money that I receive for selling my items will be passed on to a deserving organization?
None. All the money paid to you at the party—as guest or hostess—is yours to keep unless you choose to make a contribution. It is completely your decision. The contribution from Golden Girls is derived solely from the remuneration earned through the refinement process and has no effect on the amount you receive for your items.
What kind of jewelry does Golden Girls buy?
Golden Girls buys unwanted or broken yellow or white gold jewelry as well as scrap and dental gold. We also purchase silver and platinum jewelry, silver cutlery and candlesticks, silver baby novelty items, and old coins.
Can the Buyer save the stones in my jewelry?
In most cases, the Buyer can remove the stones for you. Please do not hesitate to make this request. However, after the party has concluded, we cannot return the stones from your jewelry.
I don’t have time to attend or host a party. Does Golden Girls accommodate private appointments?
Yes, a Golden Girls Buyer can make arrangements to meet with you and complete a purchase at a place and time that is mutually convenient.
How much does Golden Girls pay for gold?
Our pricing is based on the daily London Fix price, the physical weight of your gold, the karat type or fineness and other factors. Golden Girls is happy to provide you with an average price per gram based on the market during the previous few weeks. This will generally be a good indicator of the prices to be paid at your party, but remember that gold fluctuates around the clock.
What types of parties does Golden Girls administer?
From intimate gatherings of friends, families, and neighbors to large fundraising events—Golden Girls does it all. With our vast experience, operating systems and large number of licensed Buyers, we have the ability to work with any party type and any party size.
What makes Golden Girls unique?
Golden Girls is a national buyer of precious metals and has meticulously prepared our Buyers to ensure the utmost quality, consistency and integrity throughout the many experiences we offer. Our Buyers always appraise your items in front of you. We want you to understand the process and true value of what you are selling. Furthermore, Golden Girls is licensed in each municipality in which we operate. This is very important because it means we honor local laws and regulations. And most importantly, Golden Girls gives! We generously donate to deserving charities and organizations by contributing a portion of our proceeds. That’s why we say “Gold Does Good!”
