Following recent findings from the British Hallmarking Council (BHC), it has been revealed that a third of gold jewellery sold online could be fake. As trusted online retailers of gold and silver jewellery, we are passionate about ensuring that every one of our items, across all four of our stores, are hallmarked in the Edinburgh Assay Office.
What is the Importance of Hallmarking?
Buying hallmarked jewellery ensures that all precious metals are exactly that. Hallmarking certifies the purity of gold, silver, platinum and palladium.
All jewellery that goes through this vital process means that you are guaranteed quality, protecting you from unlawful competitors who may try to sell lower quality jewellery as the real deal.
We work closely with the Edinburgh Assay Office to ensure that each piece of jewellery is hallmarked and put through a series of quality-assurance tests. This means that whenever you buy a piece of jewellery from any of our four stores, you can be assured that you have purchased an authentic piece of gold or silver jewellery.
While it may seem that many online retailers have little appetite for enforcement and consumer protection, we are committed to giving our customers peace of mind when shopping at our stores.
