What does it mean "her eyes/gaze lined with silver" or "he caught a glimmer of silver in her eyes"? What is the meaning of "silver" here? I thought that it means that the person in cause is about to cry, but I'm not sure.

Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
I think it's just a clumsy attempt by the writer to "ring the changes" on...
...which as you can see is something of a well-worn cliche. Of course, it's always possible OP's writer really does have some specific "argentine" attribute in mind (perhaps she seeks wealth like a gold-digger, or she's ethereal like the silvery moon). But I think probably it's just bad writing.
I'm not sure what exactly this refers to, but it probably doesn't refer to ocular silvering, a frightening and often terminal illness that I just made up. Patients suffering from the condition often visit their doctor or optometrist to ask about "a glimmer of silver" in the eyes - usually first noticed by friends or loved ones. In its early stages, the effect can be quite flattering - even beautiful - and so patients have been known to not seek treatment until it is too late.
The results can be devastating. Within three days, the eyes have silvered completely:
If not treated, facial and eventually full-body silvering will occur. This is known as the Lesser Midas Syndrome.
Fortunately, this disease does not exist and was invented for the purpose of answering this question. Unfortunately though, this means it is highly unlikely to be a useful answer. I am sorry. I have wasted your time.
Also: Some more context would be good. :)
