I would value your opinion of this necklace:

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!

Hi Barbara,

Bron, the man who runs this site, is one of the most respected antiquities dealers around. He's a great source of information and he's very actively involved in trying to draw attention to the dealers who sell fakes, either from ignorance or fraudulent intent. His prices are maybe rather high, but you can trust him, and that's worth paying extra for, I think. I've always been more than pleased with anything I've bought from him.

Cheers,

Will

Praise from high quarters!
I really like the beads, but I have learned to be cautious.
