In the manufacture of jewellery and silverware, precious metals are not used in their purest forms and instead are alloyed with other metals.
Hallmarking refers to the independant verification of our precious metal content. Our jewellery collections have been verified independently by the Assay office in London, through the 700-year-old practice of hallmarking, per their guidelines.
The hallmark is only applied after the item has been assayed to determine that its purity conforms not only to the standards set down by the law but also with our claims as to metallurgical content.
Our hallmarking allows our customers to identify the precious metal make-up of a jewellery piece. It is not possible to discern by sight of touch alone what the precious metal of an alloy is, and so the hallmark acts as your guide to the content of the piece.
The collections by Jan Campbell Fine Jewellery are made using Sterling Silver and 9ct Gold, unless commissioned or otherwise stated.
The 1973 Hallmarking Act makes it unlawful to describe an item over a certain weight as gold, silver, platinum or palladium without an independent Hallmark
All Silver articles weighing more than 7.78 grams must be hallmarked
All Gold 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.
