A stunning 1920s/1930s Egyptian revival necklace. This pendant necklace in gold tone metal features  a beautiful scarab beetle with outstretched wings.  The scarab was a popular amulet in Ancient Egypt; being a symbol of rebirth.

Following the opening of Tutankhamen’s tomb in 1922 interest in Pharaonic Egypt strongly influenced jewellery trends in the Art Deco period.

In this necklace a real scarab beetle with a green iridescence forms the body of the scarab from which a simple freshwater pearl is suspended.

The fastening is a spring ring clasp.

This is a rare and beautiful vintage piece with symbolic meaning.
