P is for… Precious! UK’s hallmark letter for 2014

The letter element that is included in our traditional UK hallmark tells you the year in which a piece of precious jewellery was made and submitted for assay. Each year this letter changes; we progress through the alphabet year on year (omitting the letter j) – with a change in font and/or the stamp shape at the end of the 23 year cycle. Thus 2014 is distinguishable from the hallmark of 1989 by the letter being in lower case as well as by the sharp modernity of the font.
