The master stamp

As a sign of high quality and origin the handmade piece of jewelry is marked with a Master Stamp.That way, also future generations will be able to recognize who made the piece of jewelry. The "Münchner Kindl" takes on the nearly forgotten tradition of perpetuating also the city in the piece of jewelry.


The hallmarks of the Goldschmiede Kaddick

The hallmarks of the Goldschmiede Kaddick

The hallmark for gold signalizes the amount of gold included in the piece of jewelry. The numbers 750 and 900 refer to the proportion of weight of standart that the alloy contains, out of 1000 parts. The higher the proportion of weight of the piece of jewelry is, the prettier and more intense is the warm colour of yellow gold.
When labeling the proportion of weight "Carat", there are maximum 24 parts.

  • 750 = 18 Karat Gold
  • 900 = 21,6 Karat Gold

The proportion of weight of platinum lies between 900 and 990 parts (out of 1000)and depends on the necessary characteristics (e.g. hardness, robustness). We lable Platin with the letters Pt.
