Get In Touch and Lets See What We Can Do
For centuries, countless silversmiths and craftsmen from around the world that manufacture sterling silver items indicate the purity of the silver used in order to identify the silversmith, company and/or the purity of the pieces made. In order for us to purchase sterling silver flatware or serving pieces, the item must bear one of the following stamps on them. Simply check for the following stamps on your silver pieces.
The short answer, YES!
Sterling silver is made of 92.5% silver and the rest is made up of copper and other alloys. Because of this, unless a piece, brand or style is a collectible one, most sterling silver pieces will be purchased as silver scrap that will later be refined and repurposed into pure silver.
The refining process isn’t cheap to do, but necessary in order to produce other much more needed components used today such as solar panels, batteries and electric vehicles. Or even pure silver bars.
So, though sterling silver is almost pure silver, due to the expensive refining process the buy rate for scrap sterling can be a bit less than that of pure 999 silver.
The value of sterling silver in and around Sacramento really depends on the craftsmanship, maker and desirability of the piece.
To put it into perspective, if your piece isn’t a collectible piece; for a dinner fork (a little over an ounce of silver) you can expect to receive about $18 to $20 each compared to a one ounce silver bar valued at $25 to $26.
So yes… Sterling silver items can still be worth quite a bit of money, and are certainly worth selling.
Due to the vast verity of makers, hallmarks, patterns, styles and purity levels; the best way to sell sterling silver is to bring it in to our shop and let us help evaluate it for you. It doesn’t take long and we walk you through each small step of the process, which is too… identify hallmarks & purity stamps, test it for purity, weigh each item and make an offer.
And then, pay you in cash or a check. Witch ever you prefer 😉
