Since The Birmingham Assay Office Act was passed in 1995, allowing the organisation to offer products in addition to its statutory Hallmarking services, the company has developed a complete portfolio of independent, innovative, user-friendly products and services for the jewellery, precious metal, and gemstone trade.
This year’s Spring Fair will be the first at which all The Birmingham Assay Office services are promoted on one stand, offering visitors the opportunity to discuss the latest changes to hallmarking legislation, the benefits of AnchorCert Diamond Certification and SafeGuard Jewellery Valuations, or the highly successful Quick Nickel test offered by The Laboratory.
Sales and Marketing Director Marion Wilson says: “This is the obvious step forward for the organisation. We offer a complete service to the jewellery industry but in recent years we have had our staff split between the AnchorCert/SafeGuard stand and the Joint Assay Offices of Great Britain stand.
“Many customers now use at least two or three of our services and it makes sense for us to be able to answer all their queries in one place rather than have them trek from one stand to another. We are really looking forward to welcoming them all to our new, united stand.”
