Sterling Silverware

Sterling Silverware is knives, forks, spoons, and other utensils made out of sterling silver. There are many brands of Sterling Silverware, and older Sterling Silverware tends to show hallmarks indicating that it is in fact Sterling Silverware, and not silver plated flatware, along with the hallmark of the maker of the Sterling Silverware. Sterling Silverware is made from sterling silver, which is 92.5 percent pure silver, along with another metal alloying the silver, usually copper. In the early continental and Victorian eras, Sterling Silverware was a sign of wealth, and it was considered elegant to eat with Sterling Silverware. Famous silversmiths, including American legend Paul Revere, make Sterling Silverware.

Other types of Sterling Silverware are Sterling Silverware platters and Sterling Silverware tea sets. A Sterling Silverware tea set usually includes Sterling Silverware tea cups, Sterling Silverware tea strainers, Sterling Silverware saucers, Sterling Silverware tea pots, Sterling Silverware platters, and Sterling Silverware teaspoons. There are also other pieces of Sterling Silverware you may find in a Sterling Silverware set, such as Sterling Silverware sugar cube tongs, and Sterling Silverware napkin rings.

Most Sterling Silverware sets come in a wooden presentation box. Other popular pieces of Sterling Silverware are Sterling Silverware butter knives that are only sterling silver in the handle, with the blade being made of stainless steel. This is because Sterling Silverware is made of sterling silver, a relatively soft metal. Other pieces of Sterling Silverware that can be made with just sterling silver handles are pieces such as Sterling Silverware carving knives, Sterling Silverware serving forks, Sterling Silverware serving spoons, and Sterling Silverware pie servers.

Lately, Sterling Silverware has mostly fallen out of popular use due to a few facts. One is Sterling Silverware must be cleaned and polished, and so it is more labor intensive than steel flatware. Another is that Sterling Silverware is very expensive due to the relatively high cost of silver. A third reason Sterling Silverware has fallen out of popular use is that Sterling Silverware is now considered old fashioned, something a grandmother may have brought out once a decade to impress some guest, along with her good china.

Because of these facts, many Sterling Silverware sets are being sold for their silver content, as children and grandchildren inherit their grandparents Sterling Silverware sets. These Sterling Silverware sets sometimes sit in a closet or garage for years not being used, when they can be sold for hundreds, or sometimes even thousands of dollars.

What friendly staff. They help you sell your items even if they don’t have a use for it by calling other shops around the area to see if they could use it… They want you to have the best out come from selling your items. I was so happy I decided to go to them!


Great family run store. I’m well taken care of every time I show up at this location. Thank you Nick.

This past Saturday I had the opportunity to meet the owner and team at Nevada Coin and Jewelry. I didn’t know what to expect but they made me feel both comfortable and safe. I went through my collection of jewelry, both broken pieces and things I thought were of no value at all. They took the time to explain what each carat weight was worth and they helped me sort through my items. I was amazed at what they gave me for things I would never wear or use. I would recommend you stop in and speak to them, you might be as pleasantly surprised as I was.

The staff are quick at work but not too quick to make you feel pressured into buying items or selling your items. They teach you about the items and tell you if they have use for your items or not. If they don’t have use for your items they call other places to see if they have a use for the items. Great staff!


As a first timer in selling, I was a bit apprehensive. I did not know what to expect and was a little worried about a previous reviewers comments. Yes the office was stark and clinical. The staff however, more than made up for any downfall in the decor. Very helpful, polite and understanding to any ‘silly’ questions that were asked. All in all a pleasant experience, and one that should the opportunity arise I would go through again!

I recently got divorced so I wanted to get rid of some of the jewelry my ex-husband got me. I found Nevada Coin and jewelry searching the web. When I called the guy that answered the phone was friendly and willing to quote me a price per gram. I went to their store on Flamingo, Avery whom I spoke to on the phone tested my items using some kind of x-ray machine. I could see that some of my jewelry was not the karat I thought (some lower some higher). He paid what he quoted on the phone no bait and switch. It took less than 15 minutes got my cash and got rid of some bad memories. I would recommend this company if you are looking to sell jewelry.

Wonderful experience, Nick and Laura made it seamless and stress free. Thank you! They also sell super cool items!!

What inspired me to go to NV Coin and Jewelry was I was an ad on the TV for the shop. I was not too sure about going to NV Coin and Jewelry to sell my jewelry because I have been to many other pawn shops but haven’t found a good deal for my jewelry. After I went to Nevada Coin and Jewelry it was a big relief for me selling my jewelry for a good price.


After visiting a couple of the “traveling gold & silver merchants” who came to Mesquite, I made a call to Nevada Coin & Jewelry in Las Vegas… David was very helpful and professional. Their prices were the best I had seen… I left very satisfied with my trip and the deals we made. I will definitely go there again.

My Aunt recently passed and she lived in the outskirts of Las Vegas. While my sister and I went through her estate we found a number of items that neither of us considered keeping, but our aunt was clear in her will that she wanted us to use her things to make a profit and in turn use that money to help our futures. We shopped around, especially not being from the area, and got a lot of negative experiences just on the phone. People were rude, uninformative, and really just gave us a feeling they wanted to rip us off. It made us think of those dirty pawn shops you “hear about”. Finally I called Nevada Coin and Jewelry and the whole day shifted! We described a few pieces of jewelry and they helped us figure out initially a general value based on the metal. Of course, they did explain the importance of actually coming in and examining the pieces individually. That level of service over the phone got us through the door. When we went to the spot we were greeted with the same level courtesy, but the professionalism when going over each item and it’s value was through the roof! They took the time to explain why each item was worth what amount and even gave us a little bit of history on the styles. At the end of the day, my sister and I walked away with a sizable amount of money to put towards my son’s college fund and my sister’s vet school. Thanks, Nevada Coin and Jewelry!
