Nice daily wear jade ring picked up at the local Goodwill. Marking on band looks almost like a U with an arrow through it horizontally? There is also a number 6 to the right of the mark. Unable to locate the mark but still looking!

Mystery Solved

    Based on your description of the mark I would say its by a company called Whitesides & Blank out of NewJersey, operated from 1899-1917. But the few pieces I have seen of W&B were all solid silver. Another possible maker is Carl-Art he started in the early 40's & company is still producing now I think. Hope I gave you at least a starting point good luck!

    Greetings Thriftfan. The Whiteside & Blank maker's mark is a crescent moon with right-facing arrow through it. However, a U with a left-facing arrow through it could be Uncas Mfg. Here is a link to a jewelry research site which shows this company's info. Hope this helps. http://www.illusionjewels.com/costumejewelrymarksu.html
    @vintagemad, would like to see the Whiteside & Blank pieces you have. Are they on CW? DD@Phila
