Not sure, never heard of M925. Is the M right next to the 925? Maybe the M is a maker's mark. Picture would help.

I would think maker's mark too, some manufacturers, especially the more expensive ones, put a stamp on their jewellery which represents their company.

I think an M next to the 925 means the item is plated not solid silver.

HD that was funnnnny, haha!

My vote is sterling 925, M makes no difference and is a makers mark, or location, hard to say!
