We are keen to be transparent and openly authenticate all our precious metals, this means our precious metal articles have been independently tested where legally required. By doing this we provide you with a guarantee that our precious metals conform to the highest legal standards of purity (fineness).
Goldsmiths’ Hall in London has been testing the quality of precious metals since 1327. In fact the word hallmarking itself refers to the Goldsmiths’ Hall where, from the 15th century, London craftsmen brought their work to the hall for assaying and marking.
