UK Hallmark Guide
Our Guide to UK Hallmarks for Precious Metals…

Assay Offices in the UK

In the UK all products made from precious metals are required to carry a hallmark issued by a UK Assay Office. Hallmarks are your assurance that your wedding ring is indeed made with a genuine precious metal. Further validation is therefore not required; however for peace of mind, some customers also request a certificate of valuation (for insurance purposes).

The UK has four assay offices in total, which are located in London, Sheffield, Birmingham and Edinburgh. The graphic below shows their identifying hallmark symbol:

UK Assay Office Symbols


Standard UK hallmarks are made up of a series of symbols, three of which are compulsory:

  • Manufacturer's mark
  • UK mark relating to the metal's purity level
  • The assay office at which the hallmark was applied

  • Further non-compulsory symbols may also be present:

  • A graphical symbol which identifies a precious metal
  • International purity level mark (can be used instead of the UK mark)
  • A single letter which relates to the year the ring was created
  • Gold

    9ct Yellow Gold:


    9ct Gold Hallmark


    9ct gold rings carry a hallmark with the figure '375' set into a hexagon. This relates to it being made of 37.5% pure gold. As a gold ring, it may also have the graphical symbol for gold which is a royal crown.

    18ct Yellow Gold:

    18ct Gold Hallmark


    18ct gold rings carry a hallmark with the figure '750' set into a hexagon. This relates to it being made of 75% pure gold. As a gold ring, it may also have the graphical symbol for gold which is a royal crown.

    22ct Yellow Gold:

    22ct Gold Hallmark


    22ct gold rings carry a hallmark with the figure '916' set into a hexagon. This relates to it being made of 91.6% pure gold. As a gold ring, it may also have the graphical symbol for gold which is a royal crown.

    9ct & 18ct White Gold:

    18ct White Gold Hallmark


    9ct & 18ct white gold rings are still made from standard yellow gold with all the same pure gold content; therefore the hallmarking remains the same as all other 9ct & 18ct gold hallmarks (see above).

    9ct & 18ct Rose Gold:

    18ct Rose Gold Hallmark


    9ct & 18ct rose gold rings are still made from standard yellow gold with all the same pure gold content; therefore the hallmarking remains the same as all other 9ct & 18ct gold hallmarks (see above).

    Platinum

    950 Platinum (UK Standard):


    Platinum Hallmark


    Platinum rings carry a hallmark with the figure '950' set into a pentagon. This relates to it being made of 95% pure platinum. As a platinum ring, it may also have the graphical symbol for platinum which is a royal orb.

    Palladium

    950 Palladium (UK Standard):


    Palladium Hallmark


    Palladium rings carry a hallmark with the figure '950' set into a trapezium. This relates to it being made of 95% pure palladium. As a palladium ring, it may also have the graphical symbol for palladium which is a Greek soldier.
