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.
Scarabs lend the power of the this sacred beetle to its wearer, symbolizing creation, life and rebirth.
Our Sun Scarab's design is based on a soapstone Egyptian revival bead maternally passed down.
Scarab is approximately 17mm x 11mm and set atop a 2mm wide knife's edge band. Available in solid brass, sterling silver, or 14k gold.
