This ring was converted from a multi-stone scarab bracelet, a popular souvenir, starting in the late 19th century, when the Egyptian Revival was, itself, revived after the opening of the tomb of Tutanhkamen in 1922. Egyptian themes, like the scarab, quickly became a staple of the Art Deco period. Fittingly, the scarab represents rebirth. This version actually hails from the 1960s which goes to show that "Egyptomania" never dies!
Made of tiger's eye set in 14 karat gold, with a simple, thin gold shank mounted to the bales which originally connected the scarab cab to the bracelet, it's a fun yet subtle jewel perfect for those who love unique items or want to channel their inner Egyptian!!
