This Silver ring features a Genuine oversized FJ Jewellery Hallmark on the outside of the ring and is Blackened so that the images are visable. The mark is lasered onto the Jewellery at The famous Goldsmith's Hall, at the London Assay office.
The Hallmark dates back to the 1300s in the UK but the concept of hallmarking was found on items as far back to nearly 400AD where marks were found on Silver objects in Byzantine.
There are 5 Markings on a full Uk Traditional mark, This year only there is a 6th commemorative mark
The first is called the sponsor mark, this is the initials of the maker, Mine is FJ, for Fiona Jones. The second mark is the fineness mark, and tells you what metal that the Jewellery is made from, The Lion represents Silver. The third mark is the standardisation mark, the number represents the precious metal content, 925 is the number for Sterling Silver & means there there are 925 parts fine silver alloyed with 75 parts other metal. The fourth mark is the symbol for the Assay office, the Lions head means it has been hallmarked at the London Assay Office. The final mark is a letter, the font used can be traced back to the year that is was marked, the Y mark on the featured ring means that it was marked in 2023. This year the ring will feature special commemorative 6th mark to celebrate the coronation of King Charles III. In many years to come these marks will be used to trace back the history of the Jewellery, this year the ring will be a collectors item.
