Palladium has had a legally recognised UK hallmark since July 2009 and from January 2010 it is now a compulsory legal requirement for all articles of the precious metal weighing more than 1 gram to carry a hallmark. Hallmarking has protected the UK consumer and ensured that our jewellery industry operates high standards for over 700 years.
Fine Palladium jewellery is already available in stores, with renowned stockists such as The Wedding Ring Specialist seeking only the purest, most natural and whitest palladium for their wedding rings. According to reports, around 5,000 articles were hallmarked by the four UK offices in Birmingham, Edinburgh, London and Sheffield in the first nine days after a change in the law created the palladium hallmark. This is in sharp contrast to the introduction of hallmarking of platinum in 1975 where for the first nine years less than 100 units were handled each year.
Bridal jewellery in particular has seen a growth in demand for palladium, with the metal enjoying a surge in sales of both men's and women's wedding rings, offering a stylish but more affordable alternative for many brides and grooms.
