    I found this bracelet back in 1958 when my family moved into our new home near Boston. I was playing in the unfinished upper level of the house and I saw this between the floor boards. Since then it's been in a box of stuff I didn't know what to do with. Now that I've found this helpful site, I'm hopeful to get some answers about it. Can anyone help with identifying the stones, the carvings, the birds or the marking on the back. Thanks in advance for your help.

      Someone here may recognize this bracelet on sight, for myself, the last photo is too blurry, does look possibly like a Chinese reign mark but that's a wild guess.

      Thank you for your help katherinescollections and your comment valentin97.
      I have looked at the reign mark with a magglass and the letters above it looks like LIU or LIO. After comparing the reign mark to everything I found on the web for Chinese, Japanese and Korean marks I still have no answers. Any other opinions?

      Beautiful Chinese bracelet!
      Birds are Phenix, stones are turquoises with matrix web.
      Can't identify the mark.

      Kyratango, thank you so much for this information. I've looked at you page and I'm very impressed with everything I've seen there.

      Can you post another photo of the mark, try using Bonnie's trick, take the pic through a magnifying glass if possible, then post. Not sure anyone here knows about Chinese jewelry marks but worth a try.

      Check this site, they have about four pages of Chinese marks.

      Thank you davyd86 but I've already tried that site and a few more.
      Katherinescollections thanks, I will try another picture of the mark and post it.
