A rich green Faience Scarab is set in a simple gold bezel and secured by a gold pin through its center. The Scarab is beautifully detailed and has a spread-winged bird design on its back. The Scarab is antique, and the setting dates from the c1920. The gold is 14k fineness.

The scarabs are often older than the jewels they are set in. The scarab has special meaning in Egyptian lore, where it was believed that the beetle rolled the sun across the sky. Faience has been made for thousands of years, using quartz, sand crystals, and other minerals ground together, crafted into its chosen form, and then heated to harden it. Often glazed, this one was made to resemble green stone.

Details.....The scarab measures .65" x .46", including the frame. The pin measures 3.07" long. In Excellent vintage condition. You should always expect some wear on vintage and antique jewels; we consider it part of the charm.
