If a precious metal item weighs less than a certain amount it is not compulsory to apply a hallmark. The minimum weight thresholds are:
- gold 1 gram
- silver 7.78 grams
The majority of my items are under the legal weight, any items over 7.78 grams will be sent for hallmarking, as I don't hold stock this will be done per order so please allow a week or 2 on top of delivery. The products that require to be hallmarked say in the product descriptions so please allow plenty of time if ordering for a special occasion. If you require an item by a specific date then please let me know and i'll see if I can accommodate your request by contacting the assay office for a quick turnaround.
