Vintage Rainbow Winged Scarab Pendant
in 14k Gold
* * SOLD * *
A wonderful, unusual pendant, modeled in rosy 14k yellow gold, featuring a carved faience scarab, decorated with a blue-green glaze. This scarab beetle is set in a low profile bezel; series of heavy arched wires lay astride it, like wings. We love the upward movement implied by the wings here— we see them as swift, rainbow-like (even celestial, intergalactic), and truly cheerful! This winged scarab hangs from a weighty tear-shaped bail. It would make a great talisman, as scarabs are traditionally symbols of transformation and rebirth.
Total drop measures approx 38.1 mm (about 1.5"); width measures approx 29.8 mm (about 1.2"); scarab bead measures approx 16.2 x 11.5 mm.
