Caratest Gold & Silver Testing Kit:
Our gold and silver testing kits have been designed in response to repeated requests from jewellers and antiques dealers for an accurate, affordable and easy-to-use means of testing precious metals. We have been supplying these for many years to a wide customer base.
All our kits are produced in a specialist laboratory (fully compliant with ISO9001:2008 standards) exactly to our precise specification. This ensures that our products are always manufactured to the highest industry standards. Our solutions are all supplied laboratory-fresh with a long shelf-life.
We would always recommend that you use a supplier with knowledge and experience of jewellery and the tools of the jewellery trade. We don't sell bulk chemicals. We specialize in precision testing kits, gold scales etc (quality not quantity).
