A Jean MAHIE Jade bangle bracelet

Jean Mahie was set in the early 1970's by Jacline Mazard and her father in law, who had just sold Prenatal and wanted to devote himself to something more artistic. Jacline was a painter and only 22 when she decided to design jewellery since it was "sculpture you could wear". The success was imminent, Louis Arpels, 82 at the time, saw their work and in november 1970 they had their creations displayed by Van Cleef & Arpels and Cartier under their own Mahie brand. Soon other followed and the brand became an icon in New York. Today Jacline continues creating her rare pieces from her studio in Paris. All of them are unique and made in 22ct gold, chosen for its hardness.

I found this great bracelet for sale at Beladora.
