London Gold Mark - identify maker - "W&A.M."

Hello Another Gold Maker/sponsor to identify please, this time on a substantial 18ct London 1870 Ring, apologies for the poor photograph but the maker's mark appears to be "W&A.M." in a rectangle. Any known history on the maker? Regards Simon http://i50.tinypic.com/w1bvy0.jpg .

What is nice to see on the Jersey High street is that the facade of the shop is still original from when it originally opened: http://www.thisisjersey.com/2009/09/12/ct-maine-to-close-its-doors/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false...

Hello

The Blades are Silver plated, the ferrules are solid silver and were made by William Beatson & Sons - they are hallmarked for Sheffield 1901.

I have seen the word "Sterling" stamped from 1920 onwards generally in pieces of Indian Silver that I have observed usually on British export items (or for British Colonials living there).
Hope this helps

Good evening I'm going to have a stab at this... It looks to be a Russian Imperial Cipher (a monogram of MM Intertwining surmounted by a crown) - the Imperial Crown of Russia at the top.
