"In the UK it is illegal to sell or describe any item as Gold, Silver,
Platinum or Palladium unless it is hallmarked. A UK hallmark is added by an
independent assay office and guarantees the precious metal content of the
item you are buying. Sellers in contravention of the law may be prosecuted
and could face fines or imprisonment."
If delivery is to one of the "Convention" countries, listed below, we will
add internationally recognised hallmarks. For all other overseas deliveries,
including the USA, the fineness of the precious metal will be engraved
inside each ring. However, should you wish hallmarks to be added please let
us know at the time of order.
