BIS hallmark certification for jewellery is the assurance of quality, flawlessness, and authentication of your pricey adornments. BIS Hallmark focuses are accessible all over India.
How do you check hallmarking?
According to gold experts, one should check the BIS hallmark before buying physical gold. The hallmark is composed of three symbols that provide information. The first symbol is the BIS logo, the second sign represents purity and fineness, and the third symbol is a six-digit alphanumeric code (HUID).
Where can you check the purity of gold?
“Consumers can also check the authenticity and purity of hallmarked gold & jewellery items with HUID numbers by utilizing the ‘verify HUID’ feature in the BIS CARE app.
Individuals can also get their hallmark jewellery examined for purity via an Assaying & Hallmarking (A&H) center after paying a testing fee of Rs 200. “The list of BIS-approved A&H centers can be found on the BIS website at www.bis.gov.in under the hallmarking category,”
Is gold hallmarking mandatory?

Gold hallmarking was permitted for six purity levels: 14 karats (KT), 18KT, 20KT, 22KT, 23KT and 24KT. All jewellery has to be hallmarked now.
