A UK hallmark is a legally recognised three part mark, stamped upon articles of precious metal by one of the four British Assay Offices; certifying that their standard of purity has been tested and achieved by the article in question.
All our jewellery is made from solid Sterling Silver. The majority of pieces are fully hallmarked, with the exception of some smaller items, such as earrings, weighing under 7.78g - which is the legal requirement for hallmarking silver items.
Below is an enlarged view of the hallmark found
on a piece of our jewellery.
