Kaisilver premiere

Kaisilver the worlds leading online custom jewelry provider recently launched its mobile website. While the development continues on the regular websites, the requirement for a mobile jewelry website was deeply felt. With more jewelry buyers across the globe depending on Kaisilver for their special custom made jewellery requirements, the convenience of a mobile website is a clear winner. The Kaisilvershop mobile site can accept orders through the secure payment servers at Paypal. You can also follow the regular process of contacting the support team at sales@kaisilver.com with your requirements. Suggestions, advice and price quotes can be specifically worked out for your requirement.

While the steadily increasing web traffic on this mobile jewelry website are encouraging, some debate has been going on regarding the suitability of such websites for wholesale jewelry. Given the volumes and required price points for gold and silver wholesale jewelry, it might not be suitable for a click and buy type of transaction. A lot of cross communication and negotiation is required to complete a wholesale jewelry manufacturing deal. However if you are already dealing with a wholesale jewelry provider and both of you are aware of your requirements and price points, a mobile wholesale jewelry website would have good utility for both the buyer and jewelry provider.

The steady increase in the use of handheld devices to search and browse the web is going to go on unabated at least for another 2 to 3 decades. Many top managers already claim that they do not turn on their laptops or desktops for days together. Although the scenario for a wholesale jewelry operation through a mobile website might not be very clear today, it is bound to evolve as long as it brings benefits to both sides.

Where to Go

This is a new Scandinavian/Thai business partnership with locations in Sukhumvit and Phuket. They are not a refinery, and will simply buy gold items from you which they resell to a refinery in Switzerland. They will give you a fixed price in Thai Baht per gram for the karat-weight of fine gold after acid-testing. Manager Jani Holland says their price is based on the EUR price of the metal quoted by the London Bullion Metal Association exchange.

The information on the companys website is contradictory: it says the price is determined at the time of weighing and is up to date. However they also publish a price list per gram in Baht which Mr Holland admitted is not updated daily, only every couple of weeks. He says they are working on a new website modeled on that of the parent company, which will update prices daily and include a currency converter. Once again, Caveat Emptor: thailandjewelryadvisor recommends you compare the companys published rates with up-to-the-minute international gold prices and current exchange rates to check if the margin is acceptable.

Insider Tip: Bangkok Assay is an old-established company used by the jewelry trade, recommended for smelting larger quantities. For refining they charge a minimum fee of Baht 4000 or two per cent of the fine gold value. They will either buy the fine gold from you or supply you with a bar of hallmarked bullion.
