The Importance of Hallmark in Thailand’s Jewelry Industry

Precious metals like gold, platinum and silver have long been used in jewelry making due to their beauty, endurance and intrinsic value which makes them suitable for wealth preservation. However, a problem may arise in the exchange of precious metal jewelry.

To solve this problem, the ‘hallmark’ certification was developed as an international quality standard for precious metal.
