A pair of drop earrings with scarab beetle bead pendants inspired by ancient Egypt.

These earrings are part of a range accompanying the British Museum exhibition Hieroglyphs: unlocking ancient Egypt.

The earrings are made in the USA from pewter and are finished with gold-plated hooks.

In ancient Egypt, the scarab dung beetle was associated with the rising sun and eternal existence. Ancient Egyptians witnessed scarab beetles pushing balls of dung up hills, and believed the sun to be propelled around the earth in the same way; pushed by a giant beetle. Scarabs were seen as powerful amulets, as they symbolised regeneration.

A stylish and contemporary jewellery gift.

 

Please note, for hygiene reasons pierced earrings cannot be refunded or exchanged.
