Is it Time to Sell Your Sterling Silver Flatware?


With silver prices so high, now is the perfect time to sell your sterling silver flatware. Perhaps you’ve inherited a set, have damaged or missing pieces from an existing set or no longer utilize the flatware? As a family owned and operated business, we understand that you may want to hold on to the flatware for sentimental reasons or pass it down as a family heirloom. However, if not, instead of tucking it away in a box or drawer, sell it to Royal Gold Buyers of Rockville Center and Garden City, NY - your sterling silver flatware buyers. If you no longer want the flatware or need cash… we’re buying!


We pay the highest prices for:

  • Flatware

  • Serving Dishes and Accessories

  • Candlestick Holders

  • Tea Sets

Sterling silver is 92.5% pure silver, with a 7.5% additive - usually copper, and not plated. Silver-plate (electroplating) may be marked/stamped as “silver” and has very little value, unless the pieces are older, rare, by a top producer, and in great condition. Look for a mark - 925, STERLING or 925/1000 on the silverware, typically on the underside of the piece to determine if it is sterling silver. Some countries, such as Russia (84%) and Norway (83%) have a lower silver purity.


Selling your sterling silver flatware to Royal Gold Buyers is simple - with very little effort and no preparation. Why waste your time and money selling privately or on a selling site… polishing, taking photos, uploading photos and descriptions, packaging and going to the post office? Additionally, Royal Gold Buyers provides alternative options to in-store visits, please call for details regarding a home appointment.
