Relics of the Nile is very pleased to present this superb rare ancient Egyptian necklace composed of New Kingdom faience tubular beads (read below for information regarding how the beads were made). The beads are multi-colored and are brilliant in every way, displaying colors of red, white, very bright blue, green, rust, and more! The thick blue and green faience was extremely popular during this period. The length of the necklace measures a very nice 17" in length. The piece has been restrung and fitted with a modern clasp in the ancient style to make it completely wearable if desired. The style features a lovely double strand style with tubular beads running side by side, and held together with double faience spacers. This is a very nice and intricately woven style that displays beautifully. This style is radiant in color and design and looks much as it originally did 3,300 years ago! The color of the beads cannot be understated and remains completely brilliant and forms a magnificent display. The beads on this piece dates from the New Kingdom,(1,500 - 1,070 B.C.) during the reign of the Pharaohs such as Ramesses, Tutankhamun, and the monotheistic King Akhenaten (Amenhotep IV) and his wife Nefertiti. A nice addition to any Egyptian collection. Please see other pictures for more detailed illustrations of the color and design.
