Simply gorgeous set from SPHINX features a winged scarab brooch and matching pendant with the bright colors associated with Egyptian Revival jewelry. The pendant and brooch have a large lapis lazuli center surrounded by enameled accents in a shiny gold plated setting. Each measures almost 2 1/2 inches wide by 1 1/2 inches tall; the chain is 22 inches long and is accented with turquoise, coral, and royal blue colored beads. The signature is an inventory number, typical of jewelry by SPHINX (inventory number A2219). Excellent condition on both pieces. The winged scarab/scarab beetle was, by far, the most important amulet in ancient Egypt; they were made for the living as well as the deceased; the Egyptians believed that it would protect the deceased on his/her journey to the afterlife.
