In the world of today spurious materials have been on the rise and no product has been spared. By, this sentence we mean that even the jewellery has been suffering from the spurious substances and other mixing of substances too. Hence, came the need of a certification authority for the jewellery mark too. Hence, with the rise of the spurious content jewellery materials, the BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) came with the Hallmark certification for the gold and silver jewellery.
In general words, the hallmark certification is to inform the consumers of the purity of the gold and silver jewellery that is purchased by them. However, one must note that the BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) hallmark certification for both the gold and silver came into existence at different time periods.
The BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) system of hallmarking of gold jewellery commenced from April 2000. Under this system the governing specifications are the IS 1417 (this includes grades of gold and gold alloys, Jewellery/Artefacts), IS 1418 ( it does the assaying of gold in bullion, Gold alloys and Gold Jewellery/Artefacts), and also includes the IS 2790 (Guidelines for Manufacturer of the 23, 22, 21, 20, 19, 18, 17, 16, 14and 9 carat Gold Alloys), IS 3095 (Gold solders for use in manufacture of jewellery).
The components of the BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) hallmark certification are the following: 1. The BIS logo 2. Also the purity of Gold either on of this 22K916 and corresponding to the 22 carats, or the 20K833 which corresponds to 20 carats, 18K750 i.e. corresponding to 18 carats and 14K585 corresponding to 14 carats. 3. The logo of the centre which is assaying 4. Also the logo/code of the jeweller. And the BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) hallmark certification for silver was introduced five years after the system for gold had been introduced. The system of hallmark certification for silver was also a successful one and can be said that even more successful than the Gold one. Currently, there have been spurious jewellery caught in the market but the amount is continuously on the decrease because of the BIS hallmark certification
