What are hallmarks and makers marks?

These are the small symbols typically stamped inside the band on a ring that indicate the quality and type of precious metal used, and the jewellery makers name and origin.  For us this normally includes our Jens Hansen signature hallmark.  It is generally recommended to retain these unless you have a special reason not to. As they are indents they cannot be felt when the ring is worn on the finger.
