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.
