Look at your pictures. . it is very difficult to see things clearly. perhaps try different angles, and straight on, similar to the first photo. if there is somewhere a straight line cut, we need a close-up of that.
scratch test result. size and thickness.

HI Mark,
I just found a (Warring States period) jade bangle and the color of the stone looked very alike with similar motifs.The motifs above the eyes of my piece often carved in Eastern Zhou Period.Again, thank you for your respond and comment.

unless these carvings come from an proven old collection, I would be worried. perhaps you should try to contact an established jade specialist,and let him/her try to figure what's correct,and what isn't.
Where are you located ?
