Scottish Island Jewellery Handmade Silver and Gold

hallmark

For the manufacture of jewellery and silverware, precious metals are not used in their purest forms.

 

Instead they are alloyed with other metals. It is not possible to discern by sight or by

 

touch what the precious metal content of an alloy is.

 

Our customers can rest assured that all of our products come with a guarantee of the precious

 

metal content through the 700-year-old practice of third party independent hallmarking.

 

 

The 1973 Hallmarking Act makes it unlawful to describe an item over a certain weight as gold, silver,platinum or palladium

without an independently applied Hallmark.

 

All Silver articles weighing more than 7.78 grams must be hallmarked.

All Gold articles weighing more than 1 gram must be hallmarked.

All Platinum articles weighing more than 0.5 grams must be hallmarked.

All Palladium articles weighing more than 1 gram must be hallmarked.

 

Articles below these exemption weights may be described as Gold, Silver, Palladium or Platinum without the need for a hallmark.
