Carved Rosy Carnelian Scarab Pendant
* * SOLD * *
A charming, hand-fabricated pendant, modeled in 18k yellow gold, that features a vintage carnelian cabochon, carved to represent a scarab beetle. This carnelian is softer and a bit rosier than is usual, and the scarab carving is especially well-executed, with attractive proportions and polished edges. It is smooth, semi-translucent, and glowy! This scarab is footed, and its gold mount is open-backed— it is finished with a fine brushed texture. The eye of Ra is carved on the scarab's underside.
This pendant is hand-fabricated— it was designed by us and made locally. The scarab cabochon came to us from a local estate.
