Hallmarking information from A A Thornton, Kettering, Northamptonshire
Hallmarking in the United Kingdom dates back 700 years and represents the oldest form of consumer protection in the United Kingdom.

A hallmark indicates Who, What, Where, When:
  • Who made the article
    - the sponsor's mark
  • What the precious metal content is
    - the fineness mark
  • Where it was hallmarked
    - the Assay Office mark
  • When it was hallmarked
    - a unique letter mark for each year
As such all items crafted by our Goldsmith will bear the unique AA Thornton sponsorís mark.
