That beautiful necklace, those stunning earrings, that tempting bracelet…everything is irresistible at P. N. Gadgil & Sons, all set with an enchanting range of jewellery for you to handpick from, this festive season. But before you buy your chosen piece ensure that it is hallmarked.
Hallmarking in simple terms is a quality assurance certification that guarantees the purity of gold or silver. In India the system is BIS Hallmark which certifies that the piece of jewellery adheres to a set of standards laid by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). The hallmarking is done at the BIS Authorized Labs where the gold or silver in every piece is individually tested for its purity and if found correct, a mark is put on it by laser machine.
The BIS Hallmark for gold jewellery consists of the following components- The BIS logo, a three digit number (out of a set of six pre-defined values) indicating the purity of the gold in part-per-thousand-format, logo of the assaying centre and a code denoting the date of the hallmarking.
Jewellery is a heritage that stays for generations. So at P. N. Gadgil & Sons we educate our customers and encourage them to buy only the hallmarked jewellery. With hallmarking, you get an assurance of its purity and value. Even the banks prefer Hallmarked Gold Jewellery as security while giving loans against jewellery.
