Good Morning -

The Maker is:

Atkin & Wigley (Silversmiths, Birmingham, UK) ca 1920s.
The crown followed by 22 is the UK gold standard for 22 carat gold
in use for 130 years fin the UK, rom 1844 - 1974.

22 carat gold was the traditional choice for wedding bands during this time period.

The Anchor is the Birmingham town mark from 1773.
The large letter M proceeding the series is an engraving and not part of the series.

The M at the end of the series is the date letter. You can find the exact year the ring was made by comparing the M inside your ring to the exact match in the list of Birmingham date letter marks by following the links on the
Researching British Hallmarks page.

Thank you for the photo.

Best Regards
Yvonne Hammouda-Eyre
