Protecting the Consumer and Servicing

AnchorCert Group – Assay Office Birmingham’s brand transformation

Since 1773, Assay Office Birmingham has diversified its services in order to protect the consumer and serve the trade, with independence, integrity and innovation.

Now trading as the AnchorCert Group, we provide a diverse range of high quality services. We test and hallmark silver, gold, palladium and platinum jewellery, melt and assay precious metals, analyse precious metal compounds and powders, test for harmful substances like nickel, lead and cadmium, grade diamonds and tanzanite, identify coloured gems and pearls, value jewellery, watches and silverware, as well as providing consultancy and retail-focused training. Much, much more than hallmarking. It’s what we do.

With the new umbrella name, has come a total brand transformation. Over the past 12 months, AnchorCert Group brands have been given a new look and feel, with refreshed brand assets, as well as modern advertising and literature suites. And we’ve kicked off 2017 with new website developments!

Look out for more to come as AnchorCert Group progresses through its new brand journey. Join the conversation on social media #morethanhallmarking #itswhatwedo. Find out more about our services on our YouTube channel
