It has lengths of serpentine silver rope chain alternating between paired claw set glass scarabs and wire strung single faux pearls. The stylised glass scarabs are moulded and highlighted with gilt. The necklace is broken into three sections but is complete with the exception of one missing scarab and one missing pearl. Two pearls are damaged, one is scarab chipped and all are loose in their settings.
