Probably Mass Maker
by: Peter K

I have a wedding ring like this that is a size 11, weighing 10 grams. It does test as 18kt gold. It's marked "WHM" and "18BKt". The "18BKt" Cartouche is exactly the same and I've seen at least 10 different maker initials. This would lead me to believe that one mass maker, probably in New York or Chicago made these in large quantities for a number of regional jewelers. That would explain the consistent hallmark and different makers marks, though in the same style.

I bought mine as a second wedding ring and it's story was that it came from the seller's great uncle who had married in 1928. Most of these I've seen are said to be earlier than that, probably turn of the century and before the Stamp Act of 1906.
