in my opinion this is a necklace put together for tourists by someone from a few nice ancient and old beads from a variety of different places including Egypt, but they have used unattractive cheap fittings, such as the chain elements, the little findings that hold the knotted thread ends and link onto the stamped base metal spacer bars. so it isnt a genuine ancient style necklace, and if a jewellery designer had put it together they might have taken the trouble to use more authentic or precious components.
if you appreciate the beads themselves for the price that would be the justification for buying them, and you wouldnt need to feel the slightest bit guilty if you rethreaded them better!
