In general, selling silver is dependent on a number of key factors. People looking to sell silver jewellery, or other silver items they no longer want, need to think about the type of silver they own and the type of item they are looking to sell. The condition, purity, size & weight will all have a part to play in establishing what your silver jewellery or silver item is actually worth on the open market. Most silver items will be made from sterling silver, which is 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper and will have ‘925’ stamped on it. Knowing this will help you calculate exactly how much silver is contained within an item – this is important as buyers will often value their item according to the actual weight of silver that an item contains. Fine silver, which is 99.9% pure will have ‘999’ stamped on the hallmark, is rarer and seldom used in silver jewellery as it is too soft.
