It’s important to note that the price of silver is primarily based on its weight, regardless of the brand or where it was originally purchased.

Household sterling or silverware typically comprises tableware, cutlery, and other items made of sterling silver. Sterling silver flatware, for instance, is composed of an alloy containing 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% copper. The addition of copper provides strength, as pure silver is too soft on its own. To be labeled as “sterling,” an item must contain a minimum of 92.5% pure silver (although older pieces may have lower amounts such as .800 or .500). It’s important to care for silver properly as it tends to tarnish and requires regular hand polishing. Sterling silver, or any silver alloy, must undergo a refining process to achieve a purity level of .999 before it can be utilized in applications such as medicine, electronics, brazing alloys, chemical equipment, catalysis, and photography.
