Understanding Hallmarking

Hallmark Identification Guide

Hallmarking is also known as assay or standard marking. It is the official quality control mark which determines the purity of gold and other precious metals. As gold is bought dependant on its carat and weight, the carat content must be identified in order to receive a price quotation.

We understand identifying the type of gold can be a little tricky; it requires us to read and interpret the hallmark stamped on the item, however with our Hallmark identification guide, it couldn’t be easier – all you have to do is match the hallmark on your item with our guide to give you the information required.

No hallmark? No worries, we are still interested. Our staff can test it for you and make you an offer before we proceed. If you’re in any doubt, or you need some advice, please give our professional staff a call on 01902 873 711
