HALLMARKING IN HATTON GARDEN

Arlington & Co. Hatton Garden The Hallmark.

The hallmarking system has added valuable protection for over 700 years. This legal requirement protects all parties; the public who receive a guarantee of quality and the manufacturer who is given quality control and protection from dishonest competitors. Without compulsory independent testing there is a huge potential for deception and fraud.

Please always make sure that there is a hallmark (stamp of fineness)  in any jewellery that you are purchasing to ensure you are getting what you pay for.
