Assay Office London

The 18ct gold cuff & ring has been assayed and delicately hallmarked by the Assay Office in London. The Assay Office is part of the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths, one of the twelve great livery companies of the City of London. Founded to regulate the craft or trade of the goldsmith, and responsible since 1300 for testing the quality of gold, silver and, latterly, platinum and palladium articles, the word 'hallmark' originates from the fifteenth century when London craftsmen were first required to bring their artefacts to Goldsmiths' Hall for assaying and marking. This requirement continues unchanged today.
