Hi,
It looks like the set of British import marks:
Top left - sponsor`s mark, then town symbol
Bellow: .925 in an oval, then date letter
Try to identify town mark.

Sponsors marks (importers) of 20th century, including contemporary, are not well documented, so it`s a waste of time.
Concentrate on town mark symbol.

Crossed my mind but The Glasgow Assay Office closed in 1964. Date letters ``o`` or ``q`` do not fit in.

The more I stare at it the more the lowercase n looks like a uppercase R please help with any identification it's quite frustrating

Hi,

Welcome to the Forum.

I doubt anyone can help with the images provided. Please post a large, sharp close-up of the marks and an image of the item itself.

Now we are getting somewhere. The design of the the bracelet is the Claddagh, and now all roads point to Ireland.

From what I can make out of the marks, they are from the Dublin Assay Office, and if the date letter is an 'O' set at an angle, then it may be for the year 2000. However, clear images are required for confirmation.

If I'm correct, these will be the marks you are looking for:
