Hallmarking

Any piece of Lauren Elizabeth jewellery which falls above the specified weight thresholds (7.78g for Sterling silver, 1g for Gold and 0.5g for Platinum) will have been tested and hallmarked by an independent third-party Assay Office to guarantee that the precious metal is of the fineness stated, and that the precious metal conforms to British hallmarking standards. Lauren Elizabeth sends all items to the Assay Office Birmingham – ‘a centre of expert opinion and independent assessment of jewellery and precious metals for nearly 250 years.’

The hallmark will consist of our sponsor mark ‘LET’, the metal fineness mark, the Assay Office mark representative of the office that tested the item, and possibly extra optional marks such as the date letter.
