Part of an important collection of specimen talismans, this exceptional ring boasts an early 20th century stone scarab. Scarabs like this were often made as souvenirs that travelers (especially European and American tourists) may bring back from Egypt circa 1925, around the opening of Tut’s tomb. Made into a ring at a later date, this carefully rendered 18ct setting fits the scarab wonderfully, giving the look of an original, ancient example, without the hefty price tag. We have nicknamed this special example “Forest,” as the carved green jasper scarab stone displays a rich matrix throughout, reminiscent of a verdant forest on a rocky mountainside. This ring works wonderfully on the finger and as a pendant on a chain as well.
