Vintage late 40s into early 50s gold-filled bracelet and brooch demi-parure from the Atlas Manufacturing Company features domed, scarab-carved tiger's eye stones in a lovely color that shades from chocolate at the edges to a honey-striped middle. Unusual, lacy-looking settings consist of a ring of chain, layered on top of a simple openwork frame wrapping the base of the collet-set scarabs.

The backs of the scarabs are incised with what is likely meant to evoke the amuletic inscriptions on ancient Egyptian scarabs.

The spring ring clasp to the 6 ¾" bracelet is marked "Sterling", while the spring ring at the end of its safety chain is marked "ATLAS 12K GF"; brooch back is marked "12K GF" on a cartouche with a copyright symbol.

According to Cheryl Cassidy's "History of American Jewelry Manufacturers", New York-based Atlas made goldfilled, vermeil, and sterling jewelry through the 1940s into the early 50s.

Brooch, which measures 1 ½" x 7/8", has a safety catch pinstem. Both pieces are in excellent condition.
