    hey people
    have a question:
    i make some silver jewellery and stuff. im just a beginner, however not to boast i do believe my work is quite good.
    i would like to try and sell it at some point.
    the question is: how and where can you sell stuff that you know is 925 silver however it has no hallmark?
    actually a few more questions:
    does it sell cheaper if its not hallmarked?
    and are you allowed to sell it in shops?
    how do you get your own stamp?
    and anything else you may suggest?
    thanx a lot

                i tried, no luck
                maybe there is a problem with size or type of photos that my camera takes?

                  If your pieces of jewellery contain more than 7.78g of silver, then they will need to be hallmarked.
                  You need to contact the Assay office in order to register and produce your stamp and then you can submit your items for assay.
                  I just received my very first batch of hallmarked items from the Assay office on Saturday

                      what is the price of getting such a stamp?
                      is the procedure complicated? i mean if you are acraftsperson that has not got a masters degree will they still give it to you?
                      oooooooo and are you based in uk?
                      so does it mean that whatever you make you have to send it for assay?
                      and good luck with all the gems you have had hallmarked there.

                        Anyone can register. It costs something like £60 to register for 10 years, then approx. £50 for the punch and then you pay for the amount you need assayed. It's not a complicated process and they are generally very helpful, and yes, I'm in Scotland

                          Alternatively you could just make sure that your items contain less than 7.8g of silver and you are allowed to call it sterling if you can prove its sterling (receipts from suppliers).

                          This is the official line from our local Trading Standards as of a few weeks ago.

                            If you ring the Assay Office they'll talk you through the whole process. I'm with Birmingham Assay Office and find them very helpful and also quite quick.
                            I usually get my stuff back within a week.
