Lime tree seed, acorn, poppy seed head

I’m taking some time out in 2022 and only have jewellery on display and for sale in my local cafe, Hatty Bakewells in Caldecott Park – where much of my inspiration comes from.

Hallmarking.

What is it?
How does it show that you are buying the real thing?

Hallmarking is required under UK law for precious metals over a threshold weight. Most of my pieces are under the threshold weight but I choose to have most of my pieces hallmarked. If you can’t see the mark on the piece or its photo, do ask!

Hallmarking isn’t just stamping “925” or “silver” on an item, but having the piece submitted to an assay office where the metal is analysed and, if it meets the required grade, the component marks of the hallmark are applied, by punch or laser: the sponsor mark (my initials JEB), the fineness mark, and the assay office mark

Anyone selling items made from precious metals is required to display the Dealer Notice, which gives buyers information about hallmarking. You can download the Dealer Notice in PDF by the link below:
