These unusual antique Victorian drop earrings circa 1870's are actually bezel set with the backs of real Egyptian scarab beetles! Scarabs were regarded by the ancient Egyptians as a symbol of resurrection and immortality and became a subject of fascination during the Victorian era as a motif for jewelry. These exquisite earrings have kidney earwires, and are crafted in finely detailed 15K gold with with a rich antique patina. In wonderful condition, these wonderful antique earrings are heirloom quality, with the unique iridescent luster that is characteristic of only a genuine scarab beetle.
Our Customers Say..."I just received my ring and it is absolutely gorgeous! It fits perfectly! I just purchased it on Thursday and wasn’t supposed to get it for 5-7 days, but here it is on Monday, only three shipping days after I ordered it, and all the way on the other side of the country!--so it was a great surprise on this cold, rainy Monday! The web site picture, as clear as it is, doesn’t really do the ring justice. I was actually a little concerned as to how it would really look, but I could not be happier with it! I’m so excited to get married now! Haha…but this really does take some of the stress away! I don’t want to take it off! Ok, back to work. Thank you so much for your wonderful jewelry and VERY helpful associates like Maggie (which by the way, is the name of my future Mother in law!)—Hopefully I won’t need your wedding ring selection again, but I will give the web address to my fiancée for gift ideas! Take care!" - Jennifer M.
