・・・ A detail of the Agas map of London c. 1562, showing the first #GoldsmithsHall. It is noticeable from current aerial photographs how similar street patters are today. In 1339, nineteen goldsmiths bought the first Hall, a property in Foster Lane.

A hallmark consists of a series of marks applied to an article of precious metal to indicate that it has been independently tested, guaranteeing it conforms to all legal standards of purity, where it was hallmarked, what the article is made from, when it was made and who made it.

Where possible, all my jewellery will be hallmarked, guaranteeing that what you receive was made by me and is sterling silver or gold.

Did you know, when I registered at for my own personal hallmarking punches to be made at the London Assay Office, back in the 90's, I asked if they could make mine in the shape of a whole leaf, because it's a shape I love and use often. Other similar shapes were on offer, but if you don't ask, you don't get, and I was lucky to get what I wanted! Anyhoo, the punch on the right is a swan neck punch, with a rounded face - this is used for the inside curves of rings. The punch on the right is flat and slightly bigger, so it's suited for all other pieces. Just thought you'd like to see. 😁

....grrrr.....every now and then, I come across a piece of jewellery which has been sold without the necessary hallmark.....In the UK, all items being sold as gold, silver, platinum or palladium, must be hallmarked to confirm that the precious metal content of the alloy meets the required standard (this process is known as ‘assaying)’. There are very few exceptions and they relate principally to items below a certain weight: 0.5 grams for Platinum
1 gram for Gold
1 gram for Palladium
7.78 grams for Silver. As a consumer a hallmarked piece is your guarantee that the silver or gold you’ve just bought, is in fact silver or gold: it’s your best protection against fraud. So always remember to ask ‘is it hallmarked!’ I’m registered with the London Assay office - here’s mine on a recent piece.
