AWC hallmark + other stamp marks
by: Jenni

I inherited a ring I believed to belong to my great aunt. It has just broken at the shoulder and when I checked the broken soldering noticed AWC&S stamp Mark, which set me internet checking. However, next to the 18CT mark I have PT. Does that mean platinum? It also has inscribed "J/T 122. It is a longish, wavy, flat Art Deco looking design with a Blue Saphhire and 4 diamonds. If anyone can throw a light on the extra inscription that would,be great.
Thanks you.

Hi Emma

thanks for writing in.

Does the ring with the letters A.W.C & S look antique or oldish?

Best Regards

Response to previous contributions from Anonymous - HELP!!
by: Hans

Anonymous1 re your identification of the AWC stamp been that of ARTHUR WALTER CROSBEE & Co.
Yes thank you I took note of this but must say I am really confused since they are silversmiths and i cannot find any record of them manufacturing gold rings!

In addition to this the stamp of the A it does not correspond with any year between 1902 -1926! In fact a lower case (a) was designated for 1900! Missing is the anchor hallmark used to identify Birmingham.

There is however a shied that includes 3 unidentified motifs. Finally the crown used to indicate the gold purity I am advised by Anonymous2 that the crown was used up to 1844 in place of the lion.

So as appreciative for information and now am even more confused since nothing corresponds with the convention as described in reference books including that of the silversmiths from Birmingham ARTHUR WALTER CROSBEE & Co.

Post 1854 UK Gold standard marks
by: Anonymous

More Info on UK gold standard marks:
A crown mark was used in place of the lion passant for 18 ct gold, until 1844 when the crown mark was used for 18 ct

9 carat gold was still used during this period but remained unmarked.

In 1854, THREE lower standards were introduced.
15, 12, and 9 carats which had until that year, no standard mark, other than the carat and it's decimal value.
(for example, .625 and .375)
