The history of jewellery and royalty is forever entwined, and part of that history is the formation of the laws around the sale of the precious metals Silver, Gold and Platinum. A hallmark is your guarantee that you are buying a precious metal that has been independently tested. It is the oldest form of consumer protection, with a legacy dating back nearly 700 years.

What is a Hallmark?

A hallmark is a series of icons stamped onto a piece of jewellery which tells you the type and purity of the precious metal and where it was independently tested. It is a legal requirement and your guarantee of quality. Find out more about hallmarking in our blog…

The Platinum Jubilee Hallmark

The Platinum Jubilee Commemorative Hallmark Stamp

To honour the milestone Platinum Anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II, the assay offices of the UK have produced a commemorative hallmark.

The new mark was designed by Thomas Fattorini Ltd. The design is of an orb (the traditional fineness mark for platinum) with ER 70. It is an optional component which can be added to any hallmark alongside the compulsory marks on precious metals.
