Napoleon’s expedition into Northern Africa during the late 1700s sparked a newfound fascination with Egyptian motifs among Europeans. Fast forward to the 1920s, the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb reignited the popularity of scarabs in costume jewelry. Symbolizing the eternal cycle of rebirth and regeneration linked to the sun god Ra and its daily return, scarabs were cherished by ancient Egyptians across all social strata as potent amulets, believed to ward off evil and safeguard both the wearer and their household.
The earrings are in very good vintage condition with minimal signs of wear. The surface of the stone and metal show a few light signs of wear but nothing noticeable or obvious. The chrysoprase isn’t damaged and is secure in the mounting. The screw backs are fully functional and stamped A & Z GOLD FILLED 1/20 12K.
The earrings measure 1/2″ tall and weigh 4.64 grams. The box is for display only.
