SAO Hallmarking Scheme (Retailer)
This scheme is for retailers who will be issued a certificate to be displayed at the shop front. With this scheme, it will level the playing ground for all retailers in the jewellery industry, as SAO will play a part in making sure that all the members' products are of the stated fineness. The retailer will become more credible because the jewellery is marked with the standard. It will also make buying back of jewellery easier as the item will be marked and therefore guaranteed for its quality and value. Every failure case, where the results of the tests does not meet the stated fineness, it will be published on this website.
