1. Mark of guarantee:
It accredits the alloy of the metal and only she can be put by the Official or Authorized Laboratories of the Autonomous Communities (annexe I and mark of guarantee) accrediting the official law of the precious metal:Platinum: 950 fineness (ppt), Au first law: 750 fineness (ppt), Au second law: 585 fineness (ppt), Silver first law: 925 fineness (ppt), Silver second law: 800 fineness (ppt).
2. Mark of identification of origin: It accredits to the person or company that has made and / or imported the object destined for the commercialization inside the Spanish territory. This mark has to be registered to the Spanish Office of Patents and Marks and can be of free design, on condition of not being does not surround by any geometric figure nor have a measure superior to that of the brands of guarantee.
