A pretty necklace composed of 78 original Roman small dark blue glass beads with a central group of seven rare individually crafted banded blue glass beads. The beads have been restrung with later gold-coloured spacer beads, modern wire and gold-plated clasp and loops (the original binding has long since perished).

Circa 1st-3rd Century AD.


Very Fine condition

Total length 47 cms including the fastener. The beads exhibit their age however their condition is good and stable.


The banded glass beads are from 'The Signo collection', the property of a West London businessman, formed in the late 1980s-early 1990s.
