Antique 1800's Authentic Scarab 14 kt Gold Stick-Pin
SKU: ANQU- 200
This is a RARE Victorian real (once living) scarab beetle stick pin. The pin and clutch/cap are 14 kt gold. During the Victorian era there was a period when Egyptian themed jewelry was all the rage. Scarab jewelry was very popular and if you were a person of affluence you might have your jeweler create a very special piece for you using a real preserved insect. The stickpin is 2 l/2 " in length with an embossed diamond pattern on the large gold cap. The scarab is iridescent green. It is held securely in place with multiple prongs. The entire beetle is intact and in excellent condition. An etched gold frame enhances this Egyptian beauty. A rare collector's piece!
