Samantha, who guessed all 3 questions correctly said; ‘Having previously been on the Understanding Coloured Gemstones course, I was delighted to win a place on the Understanding Hallmarking course at Assay Office Birmingham in February. The gemstones course was really interesting and I came away with some really useful skills and knowledge. I’m really looking forward to another enjoyable day and learning more about hallmarking.’ The answers to the questions were as follows; 1) In what year was Assay Office Birmingham founded?
  • 1773
2) In what year did it become compulsory to hallmark Palladium items?
  • 2010
3) In what year did AnchorCert Gem Lab celebrate it's 10th anniversary?
  • 2011
If you took part in the competition and you were unfortunate not to win on this occasion, don't be too disappointed as you will have another chance of winning some great prizes again soon!
