The Hallmark is your guarantee of the quality of precious metal.
Hallmarking in this country dates back to 1327 and is probably the oldest form of consumer protection in the country.
Hallmarking is a legal requirement on all items of Jewellery including second-hand pieces, and we at Lilley's generally use the London Assay Office which has the leopard's head as its emblem.
On some items of suitable jewellery and gifts we make
a feature of the enlarged hallmark.
