This is a Murrle Bennett 9 ct gold, Jade and enamel bracelet which is fully marked and in great condition for its age.
There are 6 cabochon Jade stones each caged in a decorated gold wire. Between the Jade cabochon is a twisted oval gold wire which is enamelled in red. At the end there is a ring clasp from which hangs a larger cabochon Jade stone.
The bracelet measures 20.5 cm x 1.1 wide, it is a hefty 25 .2 grams.
In the photos I've tried to show the Jade in different light, also the photo of the marking hasn't come out well.
Many thanks for looking.

    Beautiful find, love the tiny balls on the cage wires!
    But, the stones are nephrite jade, not jadeite. Google for differences between the two kind of stones :-)

    Hi Kyra, just googled and yes they are Jade, the stones on the bracelet look smooth, silky and waxy. I looked at the Stones though a bright light with a loupe and you can see fibrous construction. Many thanks for your help.
