What is jewellery Hallmarking?

jewellery hallmarking is a time-honoured practice that involves stamping or engraving specific marks onto a piece of jewellery to certify its metal purity, origin, and other essential attributes. These marks not only authenticate the piece but also provide valuable information to consumers, ensuring transparency and building trust.


Why is Hallmarking Important?


Quality Assurance: Hallmarks are a guarantee of the metal’s purity. They reflect the percentage of precious metal content in the jewellery, such as gold, silver, or platinum.


Authenticity: Hallmarks confirm the origin of the jewellery, verifying its source and craftsmanship. This prevents counterfeit items from entering the market.


Value Preservation: Hallmarked jewellery holds its value better over time. Buyers and collectors have confidence in the authenticity and quality of the piece, contributing to its long-term investment potential.


Consumer Confidence: When purchasing jewellery, customers want assurance that they are getting what they pay for. Hallmarking provides this confidence, leading to increased customer satisfaction.



Types of Hallmarks


Purity Mark: Indicates the metal’s purity, expressed in terms of karats for gold and parts per thousand for platinum and silver.


Assay Office Mark: Identifies the assay office that certified the jewellery. Different regions have their own assay offices with unique marks.


Maker’s Mark: The manufacturer’s mark or signature, indicating the jewellery’s origin and creator.


Date Mark: Specifies the year the jewellery was hallmarked. This helps track the age of the piece.
