Scarab jewelry was popular throughout the 19th century, and enjoyed a resurgence early in the 20th century, when the Egyptian Revival was, itself, revived after the opening of the tomb of Tutanhkamun in 1922. Egyptian themes, like the scarab, quickly became a staple of the Art Deco period. Fittingly, the scarab represents rebirth. 

Russet carnelian, simply and rather naively carved to resemble a scarab is set in 14 karat yellow gold on a typically Edwardian styled shank.  A great piece to wear every day, we have named him "Babu", after Osiris's beloved firstborn.
