Hallmarking - timescales, requirements and verifiability.
The UK 1973 Hallmarking Act requires by law that items weighing over 7.78grams in silver be hallmarked by the assay office. Items under this weight do not require this and may be stamped '925' or 'sterling' by the maker.
The UK assay office hallmark is your absolute guarantee of purity of metal.
I am registered with the Goldsmiths Assay office in London and have my own sponsors mark registered with them.
All of my items weighing over 7.7 grams of silver will have the full UK hallmark which incorporates my registered sponsors mark into it.
Items I make that are under 7.7 grams of silver will either have 925 and my initials marked on the back or, often, will have no marks at all. (occasionally I get them hallmarked under the 7 grams anyways!)
If you would like any of my smaller items to be hallmarked please contact me about the costs and times involved in doing so.
Hallmarking usually takes between one and three weeks to process, but can be expedited for an additional fee.
Custom made and made to order items for residents of other countries who do not wish for the items to be hallmarked (to save time and expense!)
Under part II of schedule 1 of the 1973 Hallmarking Act. As amended by the
Hallmarking (Exempted Articles) (Amendment) Order 1975 and the Hallmarking
(Exempted Articles) Orders 1982 and 1986.

Please ask when (or before) ordering if you wish to take advantage of the exemption I can still stamp your item 925 and with my initials in place of the assay office hallmark if required in this situation.
