Description from user:

Need a value and identity on this scarab bracelet. Prices are all over the place online. The bracelet acid tested at 14k. Only mark is in the spring ring, looks Chinese , possibly says China 14+kt? I believe the stones are Lapis, onyx and quartz, possibly green stone is bloodstone, unsure. If it is marked 14k, did China make these type of bracelets and if so, is this how they marked them, with the scratches? What time frame? I am thinking 40's, but could be much older. Added last two pictures showing one of the end stones, with pinkish/red showing thru the darker outward color, unsure if this is damage I need to account for when selling or if it is a natural occurrence with the stone.

What does this mean?

Scarab link bracelet marked 14K gold and features seven scarab beetles carved from semi-precious stones. Each stone scarab carbachon is marked on top and base with small hieroglyphics; typical of the jewelry style mimicking Egyptian historic ritual. Stones appear to include lapis lazuli, onyx, roze quartz, quartz, tiger's eye, jadite, cornelian. Scarab bracelets are a popular type of jewelry that is often worn as a symbol of protection and good luck. The scarab beetle was an important symbol in ancient Egypt and they often wore scarab amulets to bring good luck and protection in life and the after-life. This piece would have been made for the Western market in the mid to late 20th century. Great condition; approximate measurements: 7" length with stones at 1" length x 3/4" width.
