This Victorian era Egyptian scarab is a delicate and intricate work of art!
With an Etruscan flair, the artist left no detail unfinished.
This must be seen to be truly appreciated. This little beauty would look stunning on the knot of your scarf or on the edge of your favorite beret.
The mint condition pin measures 15mm X 20mm (approx. 9/16 by .75 inches) The robins egg blue with a slight cast of green turquoise scarab measures 4mm X 5mm.
The hinged, C-style closure works perfectly and is secure. There is a hallmark on the outside of the C-style hook that is not stamped completely centered allowing me to make out the image.
This has tested at 9 karat gold. The pin closure is rose gold.
