This 1920s Sterling and Green Glass Scarab Bracelet is from the time that King Tuts Tomb was discovered. Once Howard Carter found Tutankhamen's tomb in 1922 something referred to as Tutmania took hold of the post WWI world and Fashion and Jewelry industries were happy to oblige the public.
Measuring 7 5/8” end to end, it sports (6) oblong green glass (think Jade colored) Scarabs bound up in Sterling Silver bands that are connected to each other with (5) flat' lined Sterling Silver links.
Also of note is the old style Spring Ring Clasp, Spring rings were invented in the 1800s and got the encircling nub around them in the 1900s. I believe, but am not sure, that the nubs we know today on a spring ring clasp came into being sometime around the 30s. The clasp here is marked with the word STERLING and I have endeavored to show it to you in the pictures above.
Condition is excellent Vintage (nearing Antique by the way) as it is complete without cracks or chips to the glass Scarabs. The Spring Clasp still works perfectly. I will note that the bracelet could use being polished as some slight tarnishing is visible.
FYI: In ancient Egyptian religion the scarab was a symbol of immortality, resurrection and transformation.
