Silver Items

We from P3M Refining Ltd., the gold, platinum & silver buyer of your choice, offer you top prices for your old or broken silver jewellery, silverware or other silver containing items, such as rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings, watches, coins or bars. Below you will find further information on silver and a table with a complete list of silver containing items we buy. If you cannot find your item or material in that table please have a look at our "Special Items & Commercial Customer" section.

Jewellery and silverware are traditionally made from sterling silver (standard silver), an alloy of 92.5% silver with 7.5% copper. In the United States, only an alloy consisting of at least 92.5% fine silver can be marketed as "silver". Sterling silver is harder than pure silver, and has a lower melting point (893 C) than either pure silver or pure copper. Britannia silver is an alternative hallmark-quality standard containing 95.8% silver, often used to make silver tableware and wrought plate.

Sterling silver jewellery is often plated with a thin coat of .999 fine silver to give the item a shiny finish. This process is called "flashing". Silver jewellery can also be plated with rhodium (for a bright, shiny look) or gold.

Silver is a constituent of almost all coloured carat gold alloys and carat gold solders, giving the alloys paler colour and greater hardness. White 9 carat gold contains 62.5% silver and 37.5% gold, while 22 carat gold contains up to 8.4% silver or 8.4% copper.

Silver is cheaper than gold, though still valuable, and so is very popular with jewellers who are just starting out and cannot afford to make pieces in gold, or as a practicing material for goldsmith apprentices. Silver has also become very fashionable, and is used frequently in more artistic jewellery pieces.

Silver is used in medals, denoting second place. Some high-end musical instruments are made from sterling silver, such as the flute.
