Sterling silver ring with lovely blue lapis lazuli gemstone, set in claw settings. A simple classic look for any occasion.
This ring is UK size N 1/2
As this ring is below hallmarking requirement it only has 925 (sterling silver) and my Maker’s Mark (mark registered with Assay Office) stamps.
“It is a legal requirement to hallmark all articles consisting of gold, silver, platinum, or palladium (subject to certain exemptions) if they are to be described and marketed as such. The exemption weight is based on the precious metal content only, which means it excludes, for example, the weight of diamonds, gemstones, etc. Anything over the following metal weights would need to be hallmarked:
Platinum 0.5 grams
Gold 1.0 gram
Palladium 1.0 gram
Silver 7.78 grams”
