Good Evening Emma

hope you are having a great weekend in sunny Leeds!

I can't see the initials inside but the ring looks old

W & G are British Jewellery Manufacturers

1. Wilson & Gill - SILVERSMITHS & RETAILERS London from 1892 to the Present.

2. The Lion in the ring is most probably the Lion Passant for Sterling Silver
UK - on .925 STERLING SILVER - ca 1831 - Present 1831

*The Lion Passant is the walking Lion with his right paw raised and all the others are on the ground.

3. Anchor - possibly registered the mark in Birmingham?






Thanks for writing in Emma!
Best Regards
Yvonne
