Hello Jewellery Lovers,

We are back with another blog and today's blog is about the BIS hallmarking that helps us to identify pure gold.

BIS Hallmarking is a system through which the purity of gold & silver is determined in the country.

The procedure of hallmarking in India started in April 2000 & the organisation that issues the certificate of purity is known as the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS).

 This organisation is responsible for hallmarking the jewellery & it also checks that all the practices as specified under the BIS act are followed.

Signs of BIS Hallmark

There are 4 components of a BIS Hallmark

1. The BIS Logo- It is a standard triangular-shaped mark that states that the purity of gold has been verified under the BIS Lab.

2. Mark of Purity- This mark provides the buyer the information about the amount of gold purity in Karat & fitness number. Fitness number indicates the amount of pure gold in the total alloy.

3. Halmarking centre number - The next mark on hallmarked jewellery is the logo of the hallmarking centre. The halmarking centre assesses the gold to check its purity.

4. The Jeweller's Mark- The jeweller also puts its logo or mark on the jewellery. the logo is embossed on the jewellery itself. 








Different Varities of Gold

Hello jewellery Lovers,

We are back with another interesting & informative blog.


 In this blog, we are going to discuss three different varieties of gold & the differences among all three varieties of gold. So let's get started without any further delay.


 1. BIS 916- The first variety of gold that we are going to discuss is BIS 916. This kind of gold consists of 91.6 Grams of gold per 100 Gram of gold. The categorisation of gold is done based on purity which is defined in Karats such as 22 Karats,18 Karats,24 Karats, etc. 22 Karat gold is referred to as BIS 916 gold.


2. Hallmark Gold - This type of gold comes with an assurance called a hallmark & to receive this hallmark gold is processed through a series of steps. The entire process of hallmarking is conducted by BIS.


3. KDM Gold- This is another variety of gold. Earlier gold was made by mixing copper with it due to some scientific reason in the proportion of 60 % & 40 % respectively & when the jewellery has melted the purity of jewellery was questionable. So as a solution copper was replaced by cadmium & the jewellery made from this mixture was popularly known as KDM gold. However, it was banned by BIS later on as it was harmful for  the  health of the workers.

Diamond Shopping is one of our favourite types of shopping & not only favourite it is even one of the most expensive shopping.


When we buy diamonds then we are investing a huge amount of money. So In a world full of replicas, we must be careful about the originality of the diamond. So in this blog, we are going to discuss how to identify fake diamonds.


1. Necessary documents of purchase - One of the simplest ways for checking the authenticity of a diamond or to check whether the diamond is fake or not always to go to a trusted store that provides all the necessary documents proving the authenticity.


2. Water Test- This is the most common way of identifying whether the diamond is real or fake.

 To conduct this test fill a bowl with water & put the diamond stone in it. If the stone sinks to the bottom then it is real otherwise it is fake.


3. Scratch Test- This is another test to check whether the diamond is fake or real. We have to be cautious while doing this test as it may damage your diamond.

 A glass plate will be required to conduct this test. We have to scratch the glass plate with the help of a diamond if there are some scratches on the glass then the diamond is real.


4. Flame Test- Another test to identify the fake Diamond is the flame/ heat test. To conduct this test you will need a lighter. You will have to blow the flame at the diamond stone for 30-35 Seconds & then immediately drop it into cold water. If the diamond is real it will remain the same but if it is fake then it will be broken into pieces.











As we all know that diamonds are very expensive & whenever we buy diamonds we spend a huge amount of money on them. So due to its high value, there is always a doubt regarding the originality of diamonds.


In this kind of situation, the certifications play a vital role in verifying the authenticity or originality of diamonds. These certifications are issued by several Gemologists & government agencies & one such agency is  Gemological Institute of America. (GIA) which certifies the diamonds so that they can be used in making jewellery.


We will now discuss the two most important certificates issued by the above agency.


1. Diamond Grading Report - Diamond Grading Report is issued by GIA for a loose diamond. It evaluates the diamond on four Parameters which are cut, clarity,colour & carat These are popularly known as the 4 C's of diamond along with this grading report a diagram of the diamond is also attached.

Note: The GIA report is issued for naturally occurring diamonds only.


2. Diamond Dossier Report - This report is similar to the diamond grading report and it is also issued by GIA itself & it also provides the same information but the only difference is that it doesn't provide plotted graphs with the report. Instead, it provides the laser inscription number.












Every woman wants to have diamond jewellery in her jewellery collection. Be it a housewife or a working woman every woman wants to buy diamond jewellery.


  One should be very cautious while buying the same Because American Diamonds are relatively cheaper than Real Diamonds. So to make sure that you are buying the right jewellery We will be discussing the difference between Real Diamonds & American Diamonds in today's blog.


1. Scratch Test-  If you scratch the real diamonds stone it will not show any marks or scratches. Whereas American Diamond will not be able to handle this test.


2. Breath Test- To do this test you have to clean the surface of the diamond and make sure that no marks are left on it & after that you have to breathe on the stone. After breathing on the stone a fog will appear on it & if the fog disappears in 2-3 Seconds then you have a real diamond.


3. Reading Test- This is another test that will help you to check the authenticity of the diamond. In this test, you have to clean the surface of the stone and keep it down facing a newspaper and try to read the letters through the diamond if you are unable to read the letters then your diamond is real.

Buying gemstones is not an easy task it requires a lot of research as buying a gemstone involves a huge amount of money a little carelessness may cause huge monetary loss.


So in today's blog, we will be discussing some of the quality checks about gemstones.


1. Colour- An important factor that helps us to know about the quality of gemstone is its colour. The colour of a valuable gemstone will be deep & concentrated.

For example, if you are buying a ruby then a high-quality ruby will not be too dark not too light & the colour is called Pigeon's blood.


2. Carat- It is another important factor that is used to express the weight of the gemstone. A carat is equal to 25 % of a gram.


3. Cut- The next point on the list is the cut of the gemstone many people confuse cut with the shape of the gemstone but the cut is different from the shape. The cut of gemstone provides depth to the colour.


4. Grading- Though there is no universally accepted grading system for gemstones some jewellers use colour grading system known as the A grading system.
