Could someone please–p l e a s e–translate this text on this piece of jewelry for me. I've tried so many places and apps to figure it out but I can't get the answers.

  • I tried OCR in an attempt to self-answer this, but it didn't work because the characters are decorative.

  • Did the strokes break off or did they forget to add them? Mar 11, 2020 at 6:04
  • I don't think they broke off.
