Renné Jewellery is a registered Assay Assured Jewellery Retailer, please view our certificate below. All sterling silver products which at, or above the minimum legal threshold of 7.78g and all 9 carat gold products, are hallmarked by Sheffield Assay Office which guarantees that the precious metal is of the fineness stated. So you don't have to take our word for it.
It is not possible to detect the precious metal content of an item by sight or by touch. It is, therefore, a legal requirement to have items consisting of silver, palladium, gold or platinum independently tested and then hallmarked before they can be described as such. Items must bear a hallmark at point of sale, subject to the following weight exemptions:
Silver: mandatory for items above 7.78 grams; Gold: mandatory for items above 1 gram.
Renné Jewellery is registered with the Sheffield Assay Office, ensuring our precious metal jewellery is compliant with the UK’s hallmarking regulations. All stock is subject to an internal confirmation process to ensure it meets the UK’s hallmarking regulations before it is dispatched to our customers.
For articles that are below the UK hallmarking Act’s mandatory weight for hallmarking Renné Jewellery operates a separate due diligence process which involves periodic voluntary testing of items that fall below the mandatory weight to ensure they meet the minimum fineness requirement.
We are an Assay Assured Jewellery Retailer. Assay Assured status is only given to retailers who have been independently audited and verified by Assay Assured which is run and overseen by the Edinburgh Assay Office, and ensures that all precious metal jewellery (except items exempt by weight) are independently tested and hallmarked.
