Sterling is the most common type of silver that silver place settings and tableware is made of. Sterling is 92.5% pure silver so it’s high silver content transfers to high payout when you are looking to sell—- Many 8 person settings that we buy are in the $2,000 to $4,000 range. We bought a serving platter the other week that alone was $3,000.
At Alexandria Gold and Silver we buy sterling silver at the highest possible prices from people living in Fairfax, Washington DC, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and other parts of Virginia. Many people find our services to be the best avenue for liquidating their sterling silver, with silver prices at high levels we are buying sterling everyday. With the increase in the silver price, many silver set’s highest value is in the silver it holds, but we always recommend that our clients research their pattern to see if it has antique/rarity value over the silver content value.
