The difference between a goldsmith and a silversmith is not the material they work with. A goldsmith can do his job in silver and a silversmith his job in gold.
The difference is in the size of the objects they work in then in the material. A silversmith creates big objects (mostly in silver) and a goldsmith small objects like jewelry (mostly gold)
