Under the 1973 UK Hallmarking Act all sterling silver jewellery that weighs over 7.78 gms must be hallmarked at one of the UK’s assay offices.
A complete hallmark consists of three compulsory punch marks:
Assay Office London (with whom Annie Haak Designs is registered) also applies two optional marks,
Pieces of jewellery (this includes our individual charms) what fall under 7.78gms in weight are exempt from hallmarking.
All Annie Haak Designs jewellery is 925 sterling silver and bears the 925 fineness mark regardless of its weight.
Annie Haak Designs fully complies with the 1973 Hallmarking Act and is registered with the London Assay Office, who independently tests and guarantees that our jewellery is 925 sterling silver, and carries out the hallmarking.
All our pieces of jewellery that weigh over 7.78 gms (generally our larger pendants) are hallmarked as required.
