Boru Jewelry® is a member of the Federation of Jewellery Manufacturers of Ireland (FJMI), which was established in 1963 to coordinate the manufacture of jewelry in Ireland. Member companies of the FJMI adhere to a strict code of ethics including the following:

  • To comply with all Irish and United States of America Government laws and regulations relevant to jewelry and related industries.
  • Not to trade in conflict diamonds.

Hallmarking is the oldest form of consumer protection. A hallmark is your guarantee that the Irish jewelry you are purchasing has been tested at the Assay Office in Dublin Castle, located in Dublin, Ireland. IRELAND HAS ONE OF THE STRICTEST ASSAY OFFICES IN THE WORLD. The purpose of these tests is to establish that each precious metal item is of the standard advertised and sold. Only when the item has passed will the hallmark be applied to the article/piece of jewelry. All Boru Jewelry® is hallmarked. What you will see on the standard Irish hallmark:

  • A sponsor’s mark/maker’s mark, indicating the manufacturer of the piece (usually abbreviated to 3 characters).
  • A standard mark certifying the precious metal content.
  • The finesse stated as parts per thousand or as karatage.
  • The location of the assay office responsible for certifying the article.
Please note that hallmarks are very small and difficult to read with the naked eye, hence a loupe or magnifying glass may be needed to view your hallmark properly.
