I read that Tiffany's said silver sales are weak, which is not the same as "plummeting" as reported by EXT4R. Plummeting is defined as to drop steeply and suddenly downward. Keep in kind silver jewelry sales do not make up that big of market of overall silver demand. Silver jewelry sales have remained in a steady range for years. Also note Tiffany's is a high end store, how did silver sales at other jewley stores fare? Don't take EXT4r's posts for his word, do your own investigation forev eveyrthing he posts.
