Story

Links to the ancient Egyptians come alive in these real scarab beetle Victorian antique earrings. Two beetles in each earring are preserved for all time and are arranged beside scalloped and textured 18k yellow gold surrounds with wire work accents. At the bottom is a dart of gold dangle and at the top, a gold orb and shepherd's hook ear wires. Often we find scarab beetles set into brass, much more seldom, precious gold.
