Gold Vermeil Ball Headpin Hallmarking

Our headpins are not hallmarked as they are under the required weight (7.78g for silver), please remember they are gold plated solid sterling silver, not solid gold. As they are 1 micron thick they are not over the required minimum threshold for being called “vermeil” in the USA, so you cannot call them “gold vermeil” in the USA. In the UK to sell these you must clearly state that they are silver that is plated with gold to your clients. Please check your own country’s laws on the selling of gold plated items.
