Story

Petite but aristocratic, this Faience scarab ring was crafted and set just as an ancient Egyptian one might have been.

Faience is a glazed ceramic and widely used for many of the decorative arts in ancient Egpyt. Their word for it was tjehenet, and it was often a teal blue or green-blue.

Many of us are familiar with the vivid, blue hippopotamus statuette that was decorated with papyrus fronds that resides in the MET Museum and dates to ancient Egpyt. That is an example of faience.

Imbued with power, faience was considered magical and likely substituted for the highly coveted turquoise semi-precious gemstone, which was so scarce that the time. Its symbolism ranged from fertility, life, rebirth to the sun.

A scarab is set in 18k yellow gold. First in an oval of gold with a twisted gold wire border. This swivels to reveal a small hieroglyphic to the back.

The band is rounded and tapered, the shoulders are wrapped in more gold wire.

Note: Free sizing with purchase.
