Posted March 16, 2018 04:25:57 The silverware we enjoy at dinner parties, the ones we carry in our purses and the ones in our hands have a different value depending on the source.
And, for many of us, it’s a lot easier to overlook than to learn about the differences.
It’s easy to see the silverware that you’re not buying because you can’t afford it, says Sarah Tewksbury, executive director of the National Federation of the Blind.
“It can feel like a burden, and it is,” she says.
“I think the majority of people that have the most difficulty in understanding that there is a difference between silverware and non-silverware, and that there are different types of silver and different types and the value that they bring, are the blind.”
That’s why she is so frustrated by the state silverware debate.
“There is a huge amount of misinformation out there that there’s no difference between what you see in the silver market and what you might see in a store,” Tewkys says.
She says the issue is particularly acute among people who are blind or partially sighted.
“A lot of people are still struggling to understand that there really are different categories of silver, and they are not going to have a great understanding of that,” she adds.
“When you go to a shop and you’re in a shop that is a white-owned shop, the silver you are getting is a little bit different, and you are going to see a lot more of it.”
But the problem is more widespread than just people who have special needs.
Tewkesbury says she’s heard many stories from people who’ve lost the ability to read because of the loss of a limb or a heart condition.
“People have to understand how to distinguish between different types, and there are some differences between different metals and different grades.” “

But a new report released by the Canadian Silver Council (CSIC) suggests that the silver marketplace is actually quite robust.
“While there is still a lot of uncertainty about the silver price and the supply, it is becoming clear that there has been an enormous increase in demand for non-green metal silver,” the report said.
In other words, there are people who need it more than others, and demand for it has gone up.
“If you look at the supply of non-white metal silver in Canada, it was very low at the beginning of the century,” says Steve Sattler, executive vice-president of CSIC.
“That changed over time, but in 2018 it was still below its level of supply and demand at the start of the millennium.”
The report suggests that in the last 10 years, the average non-White metal silver price has increased by 20 per cent.
“The majority of Canadians are not buying non-gray metal silver, because it is not available,” Sattlers says.
The silver that is sold is generally produced in a way that minimizes the impact of the metals it’s being used on.
“So, if you have a silver table, it has to be a very low-impact table,” Saller says.
It also needs to be free of other metals that could potentially damage the table, such as nickel, titanium, and copper.
“And the silver itself needs to not contain any foreign matter that could have a harmful impact,” he adds.
There’s also the issue of how much of that non-black metal is produced.
Sattles says that’s an important distinction, since some people have been able to detect trace amounts of black metal in silver.
“But that’s not really what people think when they hear the word ‘non-silver’,” he says.
He says the number of nonwhite metal bars produced in Canada is actually “much less than what’s available in the United States.”
So while it’s true that there aren’t as many non-mercury silver bars as there are non-gold and platinum bars, there is no shortage of nonblack metal bars.
In fact, it may be even less, according to the report.
“We’re seeing an increase in production of non white metal silver bars, as opposed to non black metal bars,” Sathier says.
In addition to the amount of non black silver bars produced, the report says that the majority is made in China, India, and Australia. And
