Strung with colorful carnelian, lapis, and red aventurine beads, our 52'' necklace recalls a beautiful ancient Egyptian bracelet in The Met collection. Decorated with small gold glass beads, the necklace's toggle clasp features 14K gold plate.

The ancient bracelet of Satsebek was made during the Middle Kingdom, a time when Egyptian jewelry-making reached new heights of complexity and excellence. Excavated in Egypt by The Met in the 1920s, the original bracelet features tubular beads arranged in alternating stripes of red and black, separated by rows of turquoise beads.
