In Britain, Hallmarking has a long history, dating
back 700 years and representing the earliest form
of consumer protection.
A Hallmark means that the article has been
independently tested by an Assay Office and guarantees
that it conforms to a specified legal standard of purity.
This is called the fineness of the metal and the precious
metal content is expressed as a millesimal number.
For example, the number 999 means that the metal is
99.9 percent pure.
