Gold Scarab earrings & 1920s black and white photograph of the previous owner (Carmen Caruana Dingli) wearing them.


1920s Scarab Beetle Necklace. Lapis and Peking glass and brass hardware. Delicate filigree links embellished with stones and dangling scarab pendant.


A superb Victorian Egyptian revival scarab beetle brooch mounted in gold plated brass.
The green iridescent beetles are a lovely contrast with the yellow coloured metal. There is some nice ornate rope and bobble detail around the mounts and two larger gold balls in the center which not only looks pretty but adds strength to the piece.

The piece is offered in very good condition with firm springy pin.

Dimensions: 3.5 cm in length
Weight: 3 grams


Gold tone necklace with a spring bolt clasp, featuring five beautiful iridescent green scarab beetles, with a textured finish and dropping from the chain. As these are real beetles, each one is of a slightly different size. Length 42.5cm, 16.73 inches, and the beetles are around 1.4cm, .55 inch, by 1.1cm, .43 inch. Circa 1920s, this is a fabulous vintage golden necklace with scarab beetles, in very good condition. This type of necklace is quite rare. The discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb in 1922 inspired the creation of Egyptian style jewellery.
