I love antique rings and I got my very own now! My FH and I have been trying to identify the makers mark to find a similar wedding band! It is palladium. Any help would be appreciated.
I would also love to see all your beautiful antique rings!!

I’m afraid I can’t help you with the makers mark on your ring, but it is so beautiful!!!!!
My engagement ring is from the 1940’s, it was my FI’s grandmothers engagement ring!

Take a pic of the maker’s mark and do a google search for it. It’s very easy. You may be able to find it by searching for it.

Does it look like a pi symbol to you? or two T’s together like, TT? That’s Traub! Made in Detroit.

I definitely think it’s Traub! It’s the pi symbol in a circle!

Palladium most likely puts int in the 40s… but it could be earlier. Platinum was reserved for the war effort, so a lot of rings were made in palladium instead in the 40s… which doesn’t mean it can’t be older but a lot of rings were from then. Congrats!! I wish mine had a makers mark 🙁

It’s most definately not Traub – the ring around the logo is absent and Traub is generally paired with the name Traub as well as “Orange Blossom” (in rings from the 20s – late 1940s).The Maker’s Mark is for John Giovannetti of New York City.
The style of the ring dates it to the 1950s – more so than the 1940s. And – FYI – They were still using palladium in the 1950s. It remained moderately popular in the early 1950s, but due to the rather rigid nature of the alloy it soon fell out of favor for the no longer controlled Platinum and 14k White gold.
