Buy and sell silver — silver jewellery, silver coins, silver bars
“Of course, at Nyfortuna, we also offer to buy your silver items”
What can you sell?
We buy all stamped silver in finenesses of 800, 830 (“three towers mark”), and 925 sterling silver. When appraising silver, we’ll review your items, sort them by fineness, and price them based on the weight of the silver.
How payments work
We pay by bank transfer or in cash, by agreement. If you have old silver jewellery lying around that no longer means anything to you, then you may have quite a bit of money hiding from you.
How we help you
Simple – Transparent – Safe
For many years, silver has been one of the most frequently used precious metals for producing valuables like jewellery and cutlery. Jewellery is traditionally made from sterling silver, which consists of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% other metals, typically copper: This alloy is harder than pure silver and melts at a lower temperature than either silver or copper does individually.
However, both jewellery and cutlery come in all finenesses, so it’s not a given that cutlery will be 830 (“three towers”), or that jewellery will be 925 sterling.
SILVER AS CURRENCY
In about 700 B.C., coins made of electrum were used in the kingdom of Lydia. Electrum is a naturally occurring alloy of silver, gold, and small quantities of copper and other metals. Only later did we begin to refine silver to use it for coins and expensive jewellery.
Today, the silver standard is a common yardstick for currency values. There are references to it all over the world — the “pound” in the British pound sterling refers to the original value of the coin, which was that of one troy pound of silver.
In the periodic table, silver is represented by the chemical symbol Ag. It has a density of 10.49 g/cm3.
Besides its use in jewellery, cutlery, etc., silver is also used in a broad range of other applications. For example, mirrors for demanding applications are made using silver instead of aluminium. To do so, silver (or occasionally gold) is made to evaporate, such that it can then be deposited in a thin layer on one side of a pane of glass. By using an especially thin layer of metal, it is possible to create “toned” panes that let a small amount of light through, while the rest is reflected as in a “normal” mirror.
