Next event on January 30 will focus on compliance and metal testing.

The first London Jewellery Meetup of 2014 will take place on January 30, with a talk from guest speaker Dave Merry of the Goldsmiths’ Company’s London Assay Office.

The evening, which is open to all, will focus on what hallmarking is, industry compliance and precious metal testing. It will take place at the Sir Christopher Hatton pub on Leather Lane in Hatton Garden.


Merry has worked for the Assay Office since 1971, when he began his career as a 16-year-old apprentice. He will be on hand to discuss hallmarking with attendees, and there will be a Q&A session with Merry after his talk.

There will also be an opportunity for members of the jewellery industry to network, make friends and connections with others working in the trade.
