Recently our hallmark application with the The Goldsmiths’ Company Assay Office has been approved and out sponsor’s mark has been registered for next 10 years.
The Goldsmiths’ Company Assay Office is the oldest Assay Office in UK and has been hallmarking jewellery since 1300s when Edward I of England passed a law requiring any item made of silver, which was offered for sale to be at least of equal quality as that of the coin of the realm (silver currency). (see more on wikipedia).
Most of products are sold with manufacturer’s mark of my Father’s company and we will be transitioning slowly to our own – to build a foundation that hopefully will last for hundreds of years from now.
And we do it all because at Harry Fay quality matters!
