    Put a vote in the topic; it'll be easier to gather answers that way.

    I voted for Silver, as I am assuming it makes the most sense to be the same as Gold Silver Bronze like in the Olympics.

    Silvern is not a commonly used word in English (not colloquially used any longer).

    I think it would confused people to use Silvern. If one did, then one would use Golden, Silvern, Bronze.

    The use of Gold Silver Bronze is common and no one will ever be confused with Gold Silver Bronze.

    That is exactly what I tried to explain to Bartez, though he wanted to make sure, thanks for confirming my point.

    Although we appreciate the in-depth look into the English language 'Silvern' is considered an archaic word within the English language. According to Dictionary the last known written usage of the word was sometime around the 1950's but it is still used by Jewelers to define different types of silver within the jewel crafting business. Even though im not a founder some English users might find it odd there using a older form of an English word.

    отя мы ценим в глубокий взгляд на английский язык "серебряный" считается архаичное слово в английском языке. Согласно словарю последний известное письменное использование слова было где-то около 1950-х годов, но он все еще используется ювелирами для определения различных видов серебра в драгоценность крафта бизнеса. Даже если им не является учредителем некоторые английские пользователи могли бы найти это странным, там, используя старую форму английского слова.
