An ancient Egyptian restrung necklace consisting of faience beads in varying shapes and colours. The necklace consists of tubular turquoise beads, which alternate between red and white smaller flattened disc beads. At the centre of the piece is a turquoise, triangular faience amulet with a small loop at the tip. Most likely this amulet was used as part of a broad collar originally, as both ends feature a suspension loop. The necklace is finished with a silver clasp. Please be aware that the clasp has not been professionally tied.
