Product Information

The scarab is an ancient symbol of vitality and new life. It was buried in the tombs of ancient Egyptians to insure they would have a new heart in the next life. It has always been a fortuitous symbol to wear and has roots in many ancient cultures. This particular specimen is a vintage Japanese glass reproduction dating from the 1920-40 Egyptian craze that started around the unearthing of the first Egyptian tombs. The lines on the scarab are clearly incised, but the design is subtle overall. The cabochon is 14 mm by 18 mm and is set in a sterling silver box clasp. The clasp is 32 mm from ring to ring.
