Hallmarking

Hallmarking is the accurate determination and official recording of the proportionate content of precious metal in gold. Hallmarks are official marks used in many countries as a guarantee of purity or fineness. History of hallmarking dates back to 1300 AD, when a statute of Edward 1 instituted the assaying and hallmarking of precious metals, indeed hallmarking is the oldest form of customer protection. Government of India took the cognizance and understood the necessity of protecting the public in its purchases of gold jewellery, resulting in introduction of gold hallmarking in the country. RBI identified Bureau of Indian Standards as the sole agency to operate hallmarking in India. Accordingly, after in depth study of national and international practices, hallmarking scheme of gold jewellery was launched by BIS on 11 April 2000. .

BIS precious metals sectional committee (MTD 10) has formulated and published the following Indian Standards on Gold and Silver Alloys.

  • IS 1417 Grades of gold and gold alloys,jewellery/Artifacts- Fineness and Marking.
  • IS 2790 Guidelines for Manufacture of 23,22,21,18,14 and 9 Carat gold Alloys.
  • Is 3095 Gold Solders for use in Manufacture of Jewellery
  • IS 2112 Grades of Silver and Silver Alloy, jewellery/Artifacts- Fineness and Marking.
  • Hallmarks are applied by a variety of techniques. Hand punches and bench press are traditional methods, but today items are hallmarked using laser technology which create an impression on article without any bruising or distortion.
