    Way back when I went to the Goldsmith's one day tutorial day on hallmarking. Talking to the actual assayers their number one hate was tiny zip lock bags with one item in each. time wasting fiddling. Why antagonise someone working on your stuff? Why make their life harder? Wrap all identical items in one length of bubble with one specimen easily visible and accessible. Chances are only that one will be checked if the materials look the same for all.

    Thanks Pearlescence and Jules,
    Here's my effort. What do you think? I have put them in one of those large letter boxes so that when the lid is down they're held tightly. I've made two rolls and put a couple of rings in each section as I wrapped round. Should I tape the ends?
    Also what sort of postage do you use? Jewellery insured?

    Thanks Josef, that's really useful. Mine are in a much more finished state so i haven't bundled then together. And I'm starting starting to think some of them might need to be laser marked.
