Agree, I was going to suggest pinchbeck also.
the gems may be garnets but glass is also a possibility.
The clasp, to me, is a problem as is. It’s going to be a risk keeping it “closed” and on your wrist. It is a very simple “push” clasp seemingly without a “notch” to connect and hold closed. No safety chain or over clip.
Pinchbeck is actually quite collectible though it has no precious metal content.
One red gem is chipped in half, it would be fiddly and expensive to get a replacement if you wanted to go that route (you’d need a custom cabochon cut and setting cost).
I would imagine a price around $150 reasonable keeping in mind it might be another $80 odd to replace the chipped gem.
