Every Mark Matters
The Goldsmiths’ Company Assay Office is where hallmarking began, and we have been testing and hallmarking precious metals for over 700 years. At the Goldsmiths' Company Assay Office we provide both traditional handmarking and the latest laser marking techniques across three key London locations with a choice of three priority services including one hour, same day and early hall. We process 3 million articles a year, in 100,000 packets, and are proud to apply the leopard's head townmark of London to each and every one.

News & Events
In January 2019 we welcomed a film crew from BBC One's Fake Britain to Goldsmiths' Hall and the Assay Office. The footage was aired last night on episode 4, series 9 of the popular consumer show.
During filming, presenter Michelle tried to pick out a counterfeit bracelet from a group, and she and Dave met members of the public who brought their jewellery for examination.
The BBC strapline for the show was "Michelle is with the experts as they tell members of the public if their precious jewellery is a genuine gem or a worthless fake."
