How Much Does Sterling Silver Cost?
The cost of sterling silver varies from day to day as it is derived from pure silver, considered a precious metal, as well as copper. Both are traded on international metal exchanges. In 2015 Silver has ranged between roughly AUD$19 and AUD$23 per ounce with Copper selling for roughly AUD$0.20 per ounce.
Sterling silver also involves a production process to combine both the pure silver and copper which incurs a further cost.
In 2015 the casting cost was roughly AUD$30 an ounce. A sterling silver pendant such as our Koala pendant weighs 6.5 grams not including the sterling silver chain.
Take into account casting fees, hand finishing as well as rhodium plating and a quality piece of sterling silver jewellery is very much worth its weight.
