The scarab beetle, traditionally representing transformation and resurrection, immortalized as a Carnelian cabochon. The stone rests in a solid 14k gold setting.
Ancient Egyptians revered the scarab beetle for its seemingly magical strength and mysterious life cycle. Khepri, an Egyptian god of the early morning with the head of a scarab, was believed to push the sun into the sky at the dawn of each day and down to the underworld at dusk, a myth likely inspired by observing scarab beetles pushing balls of dung across the sand.
The pendant measures 11mm x 13mm and hangs from a 20" 14k gold cable chain. We also offer this chain in an 18" length; please include in your order notes if you'd like this option.
