It is a legal requirement for articles containing precious metals above weight exemptions to have a UK recognised hallmark. A hallmark adds intrinsic value to a piece of jewellery as you will be able to learn the purity and fineness of your piece and trace it back to the maker.
- Is a set of component marks applied to articles of the precious metals gold, silver, platinum or palladium.
- Means that the article has been independently tested.
- Guarantees that it conforms to all legal standards of purity (fineness).
- Guarantees provenance by telling us where the piece was hallmarked, what the article is made from, and who sent the article for hallmarking.
We hallmark all of our silver jewellery exceeding the exempted weight at the The Goldsmiths’ Company Assay Office in London - which has over 700 years of history testing and hallmarking precious metals.
