Egyptian Scarab Faience Ancient Antique Art Deco circa 1920s 14K Gold Ring

700.00

Gorgeous ancient Egyptian faience scarab beetle antique Art Deco era circa 1920s 14K yellow gold vintage ring. In excellent condition. Marked as solid 14K gold. Size 5. Scarab measures 13x9mm.

In ancient Egypt, small decorative ceramic scarab beetles like this one were produced in vast numbers for centuries. Thousands have survived intact. Scarabs represented the sun god, Ra, and in a larger sense reminded the wearer of the holy cycle of regeneration and rebirth. Victorians especially loved to wear ancient Egyptian scarabs - this specimen. As was typical for this style of ceramic bead, a hieroglyph is inscribed on the back which may have been used as an impression seal. I don't know exactly what this one says, but it could be a name, an official title, or a prayer like "With Ra there is nothing to fear".
