Along with embodying the concept of existence, development, and growth, the scarab was revered for representing the cycle of life and death. The extraordinary bestial was therefore carved or molded into treasured accessories and amulets throughout centuries.
By far one of the best Egyptian scarabs I've ever come across, this massive 30mm pendant will STUNN all who encounter it. Possibly original, this wonderful example features a later 12ct bezel setting that beautifully balances gold color and quality.
