A pair of angel-like wings curve radiantly upward to enfold a scarab beetle, giving this stately cut-out pendant the look of a medal of honor.

The scarab's front legs extend upward to hold aloft a disk inscribed with the Eye of Horus symbol. Above that the pendant's bail is inscribed with a tiny Ankh symbol.

The detailing, including the wings' three tiers of feathers, the lines of the scarab's carapace, and the two Egyptian symbols, are all enhanced with a darkened oxidizing effect.

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.

Horus was the sky god, embodying both the sun and moon, and one of the most powerful deities of ancient Egypt. He is also associated with Egyptian sun god Ra, so that wearing the Eye of Horus is said to invoke the protection of both Horus and Ra. The symbol also represents power and good health.

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.
