Hi I also have ring made by W&G with similar markings .Mine was my grandmothers .It has a very larg blue stone so think we have similar rings .The markings on mine are :W&G 9 375 anchor T

Have you found out any more on your ring as I am wondering if the stone is a topaz or just glass. Any information would be gratefully received

Hello I have a similar ring ,mine has s ..which I think is a 1917 ring .So I am sure the rings must be blue Topaz!

Hello again ,my ring is very similiar has the S but not the yn/s

t ..maybe its worn away ? But I don't think so ...the rest of markings are the same.However I think the gold is quite brassy looking ,even though its ment to be early 9 ct gold .
