In tough economic times, selling your sterling silver can be a good source of quick cash. Depending on what items you have, and how quickly you need money, you have several options of where to sell sterling silver.

Pawn Shop

If you need money right away, a pawn shop will purchase sterling silver items. According to Silver Superstore, they will typically pay the lowest price, but you will be able to get cash immediately.


Sell your sterling silver online through eBay or other auction sites. This allows you to control the selling price by setting an acceptable minimum.

Silver Dealer

Silver dealers purchase sterling silver either by the ounce or by the piece. Silver dealers pay more than a pawn shop, and also offer quick sales turnaround.

Internet Sales

Sites like Replacements.com allow you to list sterling silver items for resale. If you don't need the money right away, this is a trusted way to sell sterling silver online.

Thrift Store

Thrift stores and consignment shops will purchase sterling silver items from you, or will sell them on consignment. If you have mismatched sterling silver items, this might be the best way to sell them.

Private Party

Sell your sterling silver to a friend or acquaintance. Place a classified ad to reach members of your community who might be interested in purchasing your silver.
