Hi David,

I will be happy to help you with this bracelet. In order for me to properly assess what you have I will need to see very clear, in-focus close-up images of the hallmarks on the inner side of this bracelet.

Please send the photos at your convenience. There is not an extra charge to provide more pictures here.

Hi,

You can try emailing your images to *****@******.*** and write “For Nora/Antiques” in the subject line of the email.

Photos sent by email do not arrive to me directly nor instantly, they get forwarded to me by admin.

Hi,

I received the sketch of the marks, thank you. Does the word that you spelled as XYENLNA happen to actually be "sterling"?

~Nora

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no I don't think, as the letters are fairly clear under magnification
Expert:  Nora replied 1 year ago.

Hello,

Is there any possibility of seeing an actual image of the maker stamps and more views of the charms on the bracelet?

~Nora

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have attached another picture, unfortunately I can not get a clear enough picture with my camera to see the stamping clearly, but the lay out may be of some help to you.
Expert:  Nora replied 1 year ago.

Hello,

If you look in the background of your attached photo, the pink satin bag is clear and in focus. If you remove that and keep the camera further from the object it may capture it in focus.

This seems to be the best picture I can get
Expert:  Nora replied 1 year ago.

Hi,

All the information and clues for this jewelry piece are contained in those stamped marks, however, I just can't see them with the photos provided online.

I will opt-out here and open your question again to all the experts at no additional charge. If someone knows the answer, they will respond to you here. You do not need to re-post your question.

I do hope you find the information that you seek.

Sincerely,

Nora
