Reed Exhibition invites you to IJL 2010(International Jewellery London) taking place from the 5th of September to the 8th of September 2010 at Earls Court 2, London. IJL is the UK largest and only dedicated jewellery trade event. It is intended to showcase the most innovative and impressive jewellery designers, manufacturers and suppliers from around the world. You will discover new products collections, endorsed with quality marking.
The UK Assay office provides Hallmarking for Jewelleries and precious metals before they are publicly displayed or available for sale. The essence of hallmark is to provide exact description of content or composition of such product since it is not possible to determine the actual content of the product by sight or touch. A hallmark usually consists of a series of mark applied to an article of precious metal or to be a bit informal, we can refer to it as precious metal marking. It invariably means that the article has been independently tested and conforms to all legal standards of purity or fineness. A complete hallmark comprises of three compulsory punch marks; sponsors’ mark, metal and fineness mark and the Assay office mark.
These marks are made using the best possible fast marking and traceability systems. As stated earlier, identification and traceability of these products is mandatory. It is good to say that marking equipments such as Technifors’ range of traceability solutions has been the unsung hero and reliable partner in delivering the required product markings using systems such as Markn’Read and other associated 2D Data Matrix technologies.
