Presenting the Cherry Blossom Personalised Silver Keyring, a gorgeous piece of the finest solid silver, personalised for you.
Cherry Blossom Personalised Silver Keyring with stylised Cherry Blossom design displays its pedigree boldly in the form of its hallmark. Five symbols, which are a true testament to its sterling silver pedigree also tell a wonderful story of not only its own, but of the history of precious metal in Britain. From top to bottom the markings indicate, sponsor mark, standard mark, assay office mark, traditional standard mark and date letter (year) respectively.
This particular unique piece was created here in Birmingham’s historic Jewellery Quarter and assayed at Birmingham’s Assay Office, the largest Assay office in the world, known for its unquestionable standards of quality and practice. Its doors opened for business for the first time on 31st August 1773.
It may seem strange that Birmingham’s assay office symbol is an anchor, it being inland. This was symbol decided by a coin toss at the Crown & Anchor Tavern in the Strand, London. Birmingham got the Anchor….
Treat someone you love to this elegant and sentimental gift.
