A Hallmark shows that an item has been independently tested by a UK assay office to determine its precious metal content. Hallmarked pieces show three marks; the Hold upon Heart sponsors mark, the metal purity and the mark of the Assay Office. Hold upon Heart are registered jewellers with both the Birmingham Assay Office and London Goldsmiths Assay Office.
Our 9ct and 18ct gold pieces are always hallmarked.
Sterling silver pieces are not routinely hallmarked unless a design weighs over 7.78g, and most of our charms and pendants fall below this weight. However we are happy to arrange for an item weighing under 7.78g to be hallmarked if you wish. Simply request this when completing your purchase, but please note that this will add an additional 2 weeks to the lead time.
