It dates from the XXVI th to XXX th Dynasty, 600-300 years B.C. and was made by the ancient Egyptians as a statuette of the beetle god KHEPER and it was the symbol of “immortality”. All the blue beads in the necklace are ancient and dated between 1500 and 900 years B.C. Guaranteed genuine, R.H. Blanchard. The modern silver gilt setting represents the Cartouche, or REN of the ancient Egyptians and the yellow decorations are PERSIAN BENZAHIR stones upon which the pious moslems repeat the 99 known names of Allah.”
