How can I read hallmarks on silver and goldBy
For my latest mini – series I am going to cover how to read the hallmarks that you can find on silver, gold and platinum jewellery. These are important to all collectors of antique and vintage jewellery as they help us to identify, date and value a piece. Over the next few days I will discuss:
- What are the different hallmark symbols?
- British hallmarks from the Victorian era through to the 1970s
- Current British hallmarks
- European hallmarks
- Useful books and websites
