Opening of first hallmarking facility on a manufacturer’s premises: Allied Gold
March, 2014 – The Goldsmiths’ Company Assay Office on March 18 opened a new hallmarking facility at the Dalston, UK-based jewellery manufacturer, Allied Gold.
This is the first time in the Assay Office’s 700 year history that a permanent hallmarking service has been established off-site on a customer’s premises.
The ribbon was cut by The Goldsmiths’ Company’s Prime Warden, Richard Agutter, and Deputy Warden of The Goldsmiths’ Company Assay Office, Dr Robert Organ, together with Elizabeth Hunt, Allied Gold’s Marketing Director.
Allied Gold Limited is one of the few remaining wholesale manufacturers based in the UK. They have been producing wedding rings in Great Britain for the past 30 years and are still doing so in their London-based workshops.
