Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs and the AAW
by: Anonymous

Sounds fascinating! Palladium is still the hot topic among the jewelry community after it was introduced as a "Gift from God" at a seminar held by Palladium Alliance International in 2006 to introduce the metal to the trade. Over 500 people attended including Tiffany. The positive aspects of Palladium are - white, bright, flexible and less dense.

Excellent info on Egyptian Hallmarks see Egyptian Gold Marks Here.

Egyptian hieroglyphs doesn't necessarily mean it 's ancient egyptian or that the marks are egyptian hallmarks. Ancient egyptian hieroglyphs are seen on a ton of jewelry.

Concerning Egyptian Hallmarking today:

Stamps are manufactured secretly by a small number of companies licensed to produce them internationally. The stamps are changed every year to guard against forgery.

To guarantee complete control over the markets for precious metals, 120 highly qualified experts at the AAW Administration of Assay & Weights (see the Egyptian Ministry of Trade & Industry for contacts details of an AAW branch) in Jewelry Resources Here - which has offices in Alexandria, Tanta, Beni Sueif, Qena and soon Hurghada and Sharqiyya regularly make surprise inspection tours at the nation's jewelry stores.

According to El-Singari, his organization is a nonprofit financed by the government to serve the public...

"We are proud of our work, which we inherited from the Ancient Egyptians," El-Singari says. "The first people to define carats were the Ancient Egyptians, which, up till now, are used by worldwide markets. We follow the rules of Pharaonic law, and out of respect to the Ancient Egyptians, we have chosen the Pharaonic signs to differentiate our precious metals."

I could bore you silly with Ouroboros snake motif jewelry info - used throughout the Victorian period after Albert presented Victoria with her engagement ring, designed as an ouroboros snake with an emerald set head.

best wishes,
