The most popular amulet of Egypt, this faience scarab, sits prominently in this arts & crafts style ring. Its popularity in Egypt is due to it’s association with the god of the rising sun, Khepri. To this day, the scarab is seen as the emblem of perpetual rebirth.

Egyptian faience is a sintered, glazed-quartz ceramic. Surface blemishes and a lustrous finish are characteristic of this material. As seen in this scarab, blue-green is the most popular color which can vary in tone. This is a rich blue-green color which contrasts niceley with the gold mounting.

The leaves and vine motif of the mounting is very representative of the arts & crafts movement. It is interesting to note two details below the shoulders; on one side, there are parallel lines which terminate at the bottom of the shank. On the other side, a pattern of tiny dots decorate the shank.

The interior of the shank is marked “14k.” The scarab measures approximately 20mm x 15mm x 10.5mm. The north-south measurement of the ring is approximately 29mm x 20mm. It is currently a size 5 ¾-6 and the bottom of the shank measures 6mm in width.

This dramatic ring weighs 22.5 grams.
