What Silver jewellery Can I Sell? Vintage & Modern


Avoid Jewellers and Vintage Cash for Silver Buyers 

You may be tempted to send your silver jewellery to vintage cash for silver buying companies that advertise heavily online. NB We have heard that they offer well below scrap for silver jewellery even though they go to great lengths to pretend that they pay more They do not. Not only that, they do not even advertise the price they pay for items whereas our online calculator is clear and transparent. We have heard many horror stories about the poor offers these vintage cash companies offer even with their fancy literature.

Check out their name at Money saving Expert for example and as for reviews, they use companies like Trustpilot, and can remove negative reviews especially those relating to the poor cash offers made for silver jewellery.

So instead got to Google Places enter the company's name  and check out their reviews there. Google reviews  cannot be doctored


Sell your Silver Jewellery To Us For More Than Scrap.

We pay a high scrap price for all types of Silver Jewellery, however as from the 04/09/2018 if you have more than 500 grams of silver  that include stones, we would be more than happy to pay you our excellent silver rates for the full weight of your silver jewellery items ie no weight deductions for stones, instead we will be paying silver weight for these stones and semi-precious gems. That is an offer you cannot refuse! if your gross weight of modern or antiques silver jewellery is above 500 grams ie the total weight of your items, then we will be happy to pay you the extra. NB to claim the weight for stones in silver, Items MUST be hallmarked


Scrap silver is an unfortunate term. Some customers who want to sell silver think it refers to broken and damaged silver, perhaps also industrial silver but in fact "scrap silver" is a term which is used in the trade to apply to all silver items that are worth more for their metal than they are as items. This is how we pay more for silver than your local antique dealer.. Many so-called antique items and old items are actually worth more for their silver weight BUT your local antique dealer is not under any obligation to take the metal price into consideration and they  often make an offer for an antique item BELOW the metal weight, so if they can't sell it as an item they can scrap it in with companies such as ours..  Many of our customers are pleasantly surprised how much more than antique value, they get for their items. Scrap does not mean a basement price.

You may well be aware that stones used in silver are often for decoration only ie they have no real value on their own, however paying silver value for these stones if you have over 500 grams of these items gives you an extra incentive and extra money when you sell your silver jewellery to us. These stones can include anything from rose and smoky quartz through to czs and the very inexpensive white sapphires.

We buy all types of silver jewellery whether sterling ie 925 or foreign silver ie 800 835, 900 etc  We also buy vintage sterling silver jewellery as well as more modern examples. We buy all types of silver jewellery including silver rings, bangles, pendants, bracelets necklaces erarrings etc. 

In recent times many vintage silver buyers have set up with the aim of trying to buy silver items at below scrap price, the point being that if they cannot be sold as items they can at least be sold to companies like us and a profit is still made. Any savvy customer looking to sell their silver jewellery would be wise to cut out these middlemen and sell their silver jewellery items directly to us. we all know that silver jewellery goes in and out of fashion but the old silver jewellery items you have lying around still have a high value.

"My Silver Jewellery is not Scrap!"  What is Scrap Silver

You might have a silver  item you think is too good to be scrapped  There are items of silver that are worth more than just scrap. We will pay more than our published scrap prices for certain items, but be aware that our scrap price is higher than most antique dealers want to pay for items.  They want to buy it for less than scrap so that if they cannot sell it as an antique they will scrap it with companies like ourselves. The word scrap is unfortunate. It means metal price and scrap metal silver  price has been and still is very high. Its thanks to companies like us that The Public has finally been achieving a fair price for their silver . Often as not the scrap price, based on weight  is higher than the item would be worth as an antique

Please also bear in mind antique silver is not particularly in demand anymore, the younger generations show little interest and yet a valuable silver antique will command a high price. The item will be rare, collectable and sought after by dealers. In oher word it wll be something special and unique.  

If the silver item you think is worth more than its scrap weight  and does not have dints, dings, scratches, gouges dents  or general wear we may be interested in buying it. If it has age and the hallmarks (it should have some type of hallmark) are undamaged we will be more interested and if the item is not engraved we would be yet more keen to offer more. If its a coin then the same applies.   
Remember most silver items are worth more for their scrap weight/price than their antique value. Get a price from your local antique dealer first if in doubt.  The next thing you should do  is to get the  scrap price by using the calculator on the left of this page. You will find out more about selling a non-scrap item if you follow the links on each page
