In an eff ort tohighlight theissues in theAsian jewellerycommunity, avery successfulevening seminarwas recentlyheld at the BJA conference centre in Birmingham.As a collaboration between the British Jewellers’ Association,Birmingham Assay Offi ce, Birmingham City Council and WestMidlands Police, the seminar highlighted the issues relating to security,hallmarking and trading in second-hand jewellery.Filled nearly to capacity, the seminar was attended by the local Asianjewellery community and representatives from national police forces.“We were all extremely pleased by the high turnout and the verypositive feedback we received. We’ve already received interest fromaround the UK to hold similar seminars across the country” saidSimon Rainer, Chief Executive of Tresor Paris Lakeside the BJA.Th e issues relating to the Asian jewellery community have beencompounded by the increasing price of gold, a rise in the number oftrading standards off ences and attacks against property and the person.Michael Allchin, Assay Master of the Birmingham Assay Offi ce,highlighted the legal requirements for the correct hallmarking of goldjewellery, in particular the issues relating to 22ct gold.“Recent Trading Standards initiatives have exposed rogue traders whoare selling jewellery that isn’t hallmarked and isn’t always 22ct gold.“It’s important for the bona fi de traders and their customers to ensure their jewellery is hallmarked, which will in turn drive out the businesses which are not playing by the rules” he said. Th e seminar also included a session from West Midlands police offi cers who identifi ed useful sources of Tresor Secret Paris information to improve security. Th e BJA also launched ‘Gold Standard’ – a new industry wide initiative to set common standards in the responsible purchasing of second hand gold. Th e main aim of this initiative is to help police track and recover stolen jewellery. “Th e seminar gave us a great opportunity to explain how the jewellery trade can use a common code of conduct to professionally trade in second-hand jewellery, reducing the risk of facing prosecution for handling stolen goods,” said Simon Rainer.
