A WORD ABOUT SCRAP SILVER Scrap silver is an unfortunate term. Some 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. Given that the price of silver is so high, 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. if it doesn't sell they scrap it in with us.  Many of our customers are pleasantly surprised how much more than antique value, they get for their items.

1/ 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 gold and precious metals  price 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

3/ NB AN IMPORTANT WORD ABOUT SCRAP PRICE

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.

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.

4/ "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 20% more THAN SCRAP FOR SILVER RINGS , 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 our gold and precious metals  price calculator. You will find out more about selling a non-scrap item if you follow the links on each page 

5/ What Silver jewellery Can I Sell? Vintage & Modern

Simply put we buy all types of silver jewellery. remember that silver jewellery van either be fully hallmarked with the lion stamp, makers mark etc eg

Silverhall

OR it may simply have 925 stamped on it. Whilst hallmarking fakes are very rare some jewellery stamped with 925 only may not be real so it is worth sending it in for testing. Chances are it is genuine especially if the 925 stamp looks clean and clear. fakes are few and far between. We will buy all types of Silver Jewellery. 

Non Gold /Silver metal/stones etc

NB we do not pay gold or silver price for springs, wire, stones, and metal in your Gold or Silver .

From 1947 to 1971, some denominations of British pre-decimal coins issued for circulation were "silver-colored," however these coins were made of copper-nickel, and contained no silver. In addition, there have been some silver decimal coins minted in limited quantities as commemorative or bullion issues, typically in Proof condition; these coins were not intended for circulation.

How To Sell Your Silver

When you want to sell Silver to a Silver Buyer  you need to follow the 4 steps here ie 

IDENTIFY - WEIGH - CALCULATE - SELL 

  

1/ Identify the purity of the Silver you may have and wish to sell  and put them into purity groups.,

2/ Weigh each silver purity group

3/ Calculate the price we would pay for each silver purity group  and get a total  and Finally

4/ Sell your silver  to us. Remember the price for silver our calculator shows is the price you will get providing your weights and purities are correct. Remember also weight can be deducted for stones, springs, and non-silver metals etc  Either send it to us or call in to our silver counter. 

 

Step 1 Identify Silver Purity  - Use The Hallmark Chart

Hallmarks1 1

 

Most UK silver  sold is mainly 925 Silver (ie 92.5% pure silver) is Sterling Silver if you see the lion passant symbol Lionpassantor lion rampant symbol (Scottish ) mark you an be assured it is sterling ie 925 silver . English silver coins before 1920 (1919 and before) are sterling  ie 925 silver ie old Crowns, Half-Crowns, Florins, Shillings, Sixpences and Threepences 

Sterling Silver can be represented by the number 925 or just have the lion mark/makers mark/assay mark and date letter  ie

 Hallmarkguide

999 Silver  (ie  99.9% Pure Silver). This tends to be in the form of bars and pure silver coins eg Brittanias, Maples, Pandas etc . It is often represented by the number 999

800 Silver  (ie 80% PureSilver) is Continental Silver  represented by the number 800. There is also a 900 or 90% silver mark and many foreign coins can be 800 or 900

500 Silver  (ie 50% PureSilver) is today mainly to be found in English silver coins dating from 1920-1946 ie old Crowns, Half-Crowns, Florins, Shillings, Sixpences and Threepences 

Split the silver that you have  into seperate piles .

 

Step 2 Weigh Each Pile of Silver Separately 

Scales

Weigh each separate pile of silver that you want to sell  (ie the silver that you have split into its various purities) and record the weights in grams. If you only have kitchen scales, your weights will be approximate. if you can only weigh in ounces then remember that cooking scales will calculate an ounce as a cooking ounce (28 grams) whereas as Jewellers scales calculate an ounce as a Troy ounce ie 31.1 Grams 

Non Gold /Silver metal/stones etc

NB we do not pay gold or silver price for springs, wire, stones, and metal in your Gold or Silver . We will deduct a fair weight for all non-gold /silver metal in your items in-line with industry practice. remember there are springs in clasps, wuite wires in bangles as gold and silver  is not flexible. Your gold and silver items might also have stones. we do offer good diamond prices for diamonds above 25 points.

 

 

Step 3  Calculate the Value of Your Silver 

Using our online gold calculator 

Calculate Silver

our gold and precious metals  price calculator shows the actual price we pay you. We note that some gold and silver buyers show the spot or full market price on their websites first. This is misleading and implies that they will pay 100% of the spot price. They do not  If they did they would not make a profit. Underneath, often hidden you will find the price they actually pay. These companies are to be avoided. Our gold and silver calculator show the price we actually pay ou and is accurate and up to date.

To use the calculator first click on the white space  right of the carat/purity section of the calculator (roughly in the middle where it shows 9 carat first) The drop-down box will show up 

 

Select the carat you want to get the value for. In this case we have selected 925 ie sterling silver .Then  enter the weight of the eg sterling silver  that you have weighed in the previous step. In this case we had 10 grams of sterling silver  which is worth £3.48. if you had 100 grams the price would have been £34.80 etc. You could have considerably more (Price is at  10/10/17.) Prices could be up or down since then but remember the calculator rate changes daily.  NB You don't have to press any more buttons, the price of your sterling silver shows up in red as soon as you have entered the weight .

Finally remember also weight can be deducted for stones, springs, and non-silver metals etc. Its a good idea to estimate weight loss at this stage if you can. if not we will agree with you a suitable amount via the phone call we will make to you.

Sell Gold & Silver - 8 Top Tips

Cashforgold

 Where is the best place to sell Gold and Silver. Who pays the best prices for Gold and Silver? These 8 top tips will guide you in making the right decision to get you the best price for your gold and silver jewellery and scrap 

1/ Sell Gold Prices Should be Transparent. Never sell your Gold and Silver to any gold buyer either online or in person, that does not publish transparent gold and silver prices ie via a calculator or in written form

2/  Sell Gold & Silver Calculators. Check Gold calculators carefully. Read the small print. Avoid trying to sell your gold and silver to companies that publish "up to" prices or who ask you to phone for an accurate price. Ask yourself what are they hiding?. Also check that the price isn't just the market spot price ie it is a price that will actually pay.  No company in the world pays spot price for gold, they pay a percentage of it , so  if they show spot price ask yourself why they are not showing the actual price they are paying  Our calculator shows the price we pay (less if applicable non-gold metal weight and stones weight of course see below). Avoid companies that hide their gold and silver prices.

3/ Avoid Gold  Comparison Websites. Never use gold comparison websites, they are rigged as a search on google will reveal. we know of a few gold comparison websites that list some very poor paying companies and even the winner pays 40% less for gold and silver than we do. often these companies have made up names like postyourgold4cash, that sort of thing.

4/ Avoid Gold Packs. Avoid companies that send out gold packs. Its a gimmick. You can pick up Special Delivery envolopes from the Post Office free of charge to post your gold and silver items and who do you think bears the cost of these gimmicks? You do, nothing is really free. the cost of these gold packs are  taken off the price you receive for your gold and silver. 

5/ Check Carat and Purity. Always check the carat and purity of your gold and silver and weigh them separately. . Group your items into the correct carat/purities before weighing each group That way you can use an "actual price" online gold calculator to get an accurate value of your gold and silver items, For more information on selling in this way  see our sell gold guide or our sell silver guide above.

6/  Cut Out the Gold & Silver Buying Middleman. Avoid selling your gold and silver to local jewellers, antique dealers and gold buyers. Think about it. Local jewellers, antique dealers and local gold buyers simply sell on their gold and silver to companies like the Birmingham Gold Company who buy from the Trade all over the UK. They have to make a profit. Cutting out the middleman can earn you up to £5 per gram for 9 carat gold. That could mean an extra £500 on a 100 gram gold chain. Also do not fall for the "I'll buy your gold and silver as an item instead of scrap" line. Most local jewellers antique dealers and gold buyers will want to pay less than scrap price for your gold and silver. That way if they can't make a profit selling them on they at least they can make a profit by selling to companies like the Birmingham Gold Company

7/ When You Sell Gold and Silver.  By Post  Always know your weights and carat and use a safe courier. Special delivery is best But most importantly make sure that if you do not accept their offer ie because it is too low that they will return your items to you free of charge. That way they do not have you over a barrel. before sending off your items make sure you have split them into the right carats/purities and keep a not detailing these and of course the weights for each group. Do expect deductipons for non precious metals in your gold and silver jewellery and scrap ie clasps, stones etc but this loss should be small

8/ When You Sell Gold and Silver In Person. If they take your items and weigh them in a back room instead of in front of you, alarm bells shoiuld be ringing. Make sure you are organised. Do expect deductipons for non precious metals in your gold and silver jewellery and scrap ie clasps, stones etc but this loss should be small.  Always ask for any gold or silver test to be explained to you.
