  • Q:Is silver worth the same as gold?

    A:No. Silver is worth significantly less per ounce than gold. For this reason, it is a good idea to sell a large quantity, or weight, at once. The more grams or ounces you have in total weight, the more your final payout will be. Selling light items, like a single ring or bracelet, can amount to very little payout. When silver buyers purchase your silver, they are paying for the raw materials only, not for the piece it's self. This is important to note because when purchasing the jewelry at a jewelry store, there is usually a high markup of up to 500%. This is the reason you may buy a genuine silver ring from a jewelry store for $40.00 and later find out that it is really only worth about $1.00 in raw materials.

    A:If there are markings on your jewelry that can sometimes indicate what type of metal it is.
