Anyone know if the inscription on this bracelet is Farsi or Arabic and what does it say?

I'll ask my ex if no one responds in time. She has learned and speaks both.

Although, I'll admit that it really doesn't look like Arabic to me

At first glance, I thought it looked roughly like the Om/Aum, a syllable representing a sacred sound or chant in Hinduism (and other Eastern religions), as written in the Devanagari script (used for Sanskrit and other Indian languages) but I'm not sure if that's what it's meant to be on the bracelet -- the script doesn't look exactly like it's typical form but I could see a vague similarity (if it were a stylized form?).

Om, Aum - Hindu Symbols - ReligionFacts

I might be wrong and it could be something else though in another script or language, but that's just what I thought it looked similar to.

Very likely! Hadn't thought of that but have seen the Om symbol on jewelry.
