In keeping with the scarab's position of high esteem in ancient Egyptian beliefs, this sterling silver pendant honors the beetle by giving it a pair of outstretched wings, much like those of Isis and other Egyptian deities. An oxidized antique effect highlights the beetle's realistic detailing and the radiating lines of the two tiers of feathers on the wings.

 Scarab amulets were hugely popular in ancient Egypt. Over the years they had many purposes such as being used for seals, jewelry, and to commemorate the deeds of the pharaoh. So many were made that even to this day many thousands have survived.

Scarab beetles were seen by the Egyptians as symbols of rebirth and regeneration and were associated with the sun gods, particularly the god Khepri, who was depicted either as a scarab beetle or a scarab-headed man. Khepri was the alter-ego of Ra. The same way a scarab beetle rolls dung into balls in which to lay eggs, Khepri rolled the sun to the horizon, where it would rise. After Ra, as the sun, traversed the sky, Khepri would again roll it through the Other World by night back to its original rising place.

We wanted to give our customers a way of personalizing their pendants, but many of the pieces in our store are textured on the backside, have an uneven surface, or a design on all sides, making it impossible to engrave them.

Our solution to this problem was to offer engravable charms that you can add onto any necklace. They are small, about 1/2" wide (12 mm) and come with free engraving on the front side (backside engraving is available for an additional charge).

We currently only have these in two shapes (a heart or circle), but will be adding more as time goes on. The charms are also engraved in-house and custom fit with findings to match your pendant.

You can choose engravable charm options right on the product page of any pendant. Below are a few photographs of charms we've made for customers in the past, along with their pendants.
