This lively turquoise ring is a 1920's souvenir scarab, set in 14ct gold. He is a wonderful comparative example with a carved reverse - I love his part in the history of egyptomania. So many scarabs were excavated so quickly, Egyptian artisans rushed to carve more in the 20's. This one in particular boasts sizable lotuses on the shoulders, a symbol of unity that symbolized the unified upper and lower Egypt.
