Vibrant and mysterious, this winged scarab brooch comes to us from the Art Deco Egyptian Revival period.

Symbolizing a guaranteed rebirth, this scarab is carved into a lively and iridescent oval saphiret. Saphiret is highly collectible and was usually made in the Czech Republic in the early part of the 20th century.

Its hues shift from bronze tones to electric blues. The feathered wings are enameled in bright colors of lapis blue, turquoise, white, and crimson that have not faded a bit in nearly 100 years.

Rendered in vermeil, or gold over silver, every aspect catches your eye in three-dimensional detail. Perfectly sized, a remarkable embellishment for a lapel or scarf, the pin closure adapts to any number of uses.
