What is a Hallmark?

A Hallmark is a mark or a series of marks that are stamped onto certain metals to certify their preciousness and purity.

Hallmarking at Becky's Boutique

Wishbone jewellery in gold like, rings in gold made from solid gold. Shop for womens gold rings and mens wedding rings.

Our Capsule Collection and Fine Collection carry pieces that require a hallmark to show they have been independantly certified and tested by the UK Assay office, and provide you with a guarantee of their provenance and metal fineness.

We make sure that all hallmarks are applied to the back or inside band of your jewellery – in an area not visible to you when you wear it.

Please note that these items will have a longer processing time (typically 2 – 3 weeks) as they must be sent to the UK Assay office for testing and the application of the hallmark.

As we have to send the pieces to the London Assay Office for testing and application of the hallmark, this process typically takes 2-3 weeks. During the festive season, this process can take between 4-6 weeks due to increased demand.

Please note that in order to keep our prices and production times to a minimum, we do not apply a hallmark to items that fall under the specified weight thresholds (1 gram for gold, 7.78 grams for silver, 0.5 grams for platinum and 1 gram for palladium). However, if you would like to have a hallmark applied to one of these items, we can arrange this for you via our UK Hallmarking Service.
