On One Hand: Protective ValueSilver plate, or silver plating, is commonly used as a protective covering for many items ranging from musical instruments and electrical contacts to switches. Silver is quite resistant to corrosion and oxidization, which makes silver plate a good protective covering.On the Other: Decorative ValueSilver plating is a cost-effective way to add decorative value to many items. The most common item that is silver plated for decorative value is dinnerware, such as cutlery, plates and glasses.Bottom LineBecause silver plate is applied in layers ranging between only 0.1 to 30 microns (millionths of 1 meter), silver plate has little silver weight value. The main value of silver plate is as a protective or decorative layer added to another product.
