The silver calculator is a silver melt value calculator which can be used to determine the value of silver metal inside an item with a known weight and silver purity. These items may include silver jewelry (such as, bangles, bracelets, chains, earrings, necklaces, pendants, and rings), silver bullion and silver coins.

The silver calculator is designed to calculate the silver metal value for one item at a time. If you would like to calculate the silver metal value for multiple items simultaneously consider using the scrap silver calculator for scrap silver, the silver bullion calculator for silver bullion bars and coins, and the silver coin calculator for silver coins.

Calculation 1: Value of silver metal

This calculation determines the value of silver metal based on the weight, purity, and bid price for silver metal.

Step 1: Convert the weight of the silver alloy into troy ounces
Weight of silver alloy
= Weight of silver alloy × Conversion factor
= 0 × 31.1034768
= 0 oz t
Step 2: Convert the weight of the silver alloy into the weight of silver metal
Weight of silver metal
= Weight of silver alloy × Silver purity (%) ÷ 100
= 0 × 99.9 ÷ 100
= 0 oz t
Step 3: Calculate the value of silver metal
Value of silver metal
= Weight of silver metal × Price of silver metal
= 0 × 0
= 0

* Unit weight conversions
1 avoirdupois ounce (oz) = 28.349523125 g 1 baht = 15.244 g 1 carat (ct) = 0.2 g
1 grain = 0.06479891 g 1 kilogram (kg) = 1000 g 1 masha = 0.97 g
1 milligram (mg) = 0.001 g 1 pennyweight (dwt) = 1.55517384 g 1 pound (lb) = 453.59237 g
1 ratti = 0.1215 g 1 tael (China - Treasury standard) = 37.5 g 1 tael (Hong Kong) = 37.7993638 g
1 tola (India) = 11.6638038 g 1 tola (Pakistan) = 12.5 g 1 tonne (t) = 1000 kg
1 ton (short) = 907.18474 kg 1 ton (long) = 1016.047 kg 1 troy ounce (oz t) = 31.1034768 g


Calculation 2: Silver sellers - what price should I sell for?

This calculation determines a price relative to the value of silver metal from calculation 1.

This calculation is useful for people selling silver. For people selling to a silver buyer for cash it helps you negotiate a fair price. For people onselling silver it helps determine listing prices.

In addition, this calculation can also be used by silver buyers to come up with offer prices.


Step 1: Calculate price relative to the value of silver metal
= Value of silver metal × Silver metal value (%) ÷ 100
= 0 × 0 ÷ 100
= 0

Calculation 3: Silver buyers - is it cheap or expensive?

This calculation determines how the price compares relative to the value of silver metal from calculation 1.

This calculation is useful for people buying silver. In general, how far the price deviates from the silver metal value determines if it is cheap or expensive.


Step 1: Calculate silver metal value (%)
Silver metal value (%)
= Price ÷ Value of silver metal × 100
= 0 ÷ 0 × 100
= 0 %

Additional information



The calculators on this page are for information purposes only.

We do not buy or sell precious metals.

Silver melt value only

Silver is often used inside alloys (mixture of metals).

The calculator on this page is only calculating the value of the silver metal component.

Solid silver jewelry

The calculators assume homogenous (uniform) composition.

Silver price

Silver trades on international commodity markets.

This website uses the silver bid price which is different from the silver ask price and silver spot price:

  • Bid price: The price for immediate purchase.
  • Ask price: The price for immediate sale.
  • Spot price: The price trading (buying and selling) is occurring for immediate delivery.
  • Bid-ask spread: The difference between the bid price and the ask price.

Look under the silver price being used in the calculator to confirm when the price was last updated.

Live silver price

The live silver price is retrieved when the page first loads or when the currency is changed.

If you are on this webpage for some time then the price shown become less up-to-date, therefore we recommending refreshing the page every so often in this situation. The frequency you refresh is dependent on your tolerance for currency and price flucations and their effect on the calculator currency-denominated inputs and outputs.

Occasionally we are unable to connect to our live silver price feed.

If this occurs, the website will fall back to using the non-live silver price equivalent of the currency requested.

Non-live silver price

We aim to update the non-live silver price currencies once per hour.

Occasionally there will be a longer interval between updates.

All prices in this list should only be considered estimates due to small delays in data synchronization and the nature of price and currency fluctuations.

Other price influences

The silver metal value may only be one factor which influences the price.

Other factors may include, but not limited to:


We use a simple rounding algorithm in calculating currency-denominated values. This is due to accepting a large range of currencies and the need to present user-friendly numbers.
