The Association for Contemporary Jewellery

is devoted to the promotion, representation, understanding and development of contemporary jewellery in the United Kingdom and abroad.

Founded as a membership association in 1997 and registered as a Limited Company in 2006, it recognises a need to foster discussion, debate and critical review and interaction amongst its members. To this end we organise conferences, lectures, seminars, workshops and an annual general meeting for our members. Our regular newsletter, findings, features reviews, information, comment, book offers and discounts and is of benefit to both our members and the wider public. We also produce a monthly e-bulletin featuring news and opportunities.

We welcome as members practising jewellers, associated designers and crafts people, educators, students, gallery owners and retailers, museum curators, critics and collectors - indeed, anyone with an interest in contemporary jewellery.

Price Adjustment 2019
The Goldsmiths’ Company Assay Office is committed to providing a premium quality hallmark and a premium quality service to match.
A customer survey in 2017 highlighted two areas you recommended that we should explore: a guaranteed turnaround time and expansion of online services. We delivered in both areas in 2018.
Further analysis has shown that when paper hallnotes are used, only 3% of them are completed correctly. This has meant that considerable resource is required to clarify the details. With this in mind, we want to encourage our customers to use online hallnote completion as much as possible. The savings made will allow us to maintain current prices for standard hallmarking services in the forthcoming year. Without online hallnote completion, we will have to raise our prices.
