Examples of Scarab Jewelry

February 6, 2013

I heard the scarab mentioned a few days ago in a jewelry blog and had to say I was perplexed…what is a scarab and how is it used in jewelry making? Here’s a quick description and some examples:

The scarab beetle has been a symbolic motif in Egyptian jewelry for thousands of years. The scarab is a symbol of regeneration and rebirth, thus scarab jewelry was thought to bring protection, luck and vitality to the wearer. Egyptian soldiers were given scarabs before going into battle. Women were given scarabs for fertility. Scarab beads and designs were commonly fashioned into bracelets, pendants and rings.
