SIgned Aesthetic Scarab Earrings
These vintage Scarabs are signed on the back and they are the neatest looking creatures. The scarab-beetle god Khepera was believed to push the setting sun along the sky in the same manner as the bettle with his ball of dung. In many artifacts, the scarab is depicted pushing the sun along its course in the sky. During and following the New Kingdom, scarab amulets were often placed over the heart of the mummified deceased. These travel up the gunmetal chains and they stayed so now they can be at the top of the dramatic design of these aesthetic earrings. The bottom of the center chain holds a glass faceted czech bead with the rich green and gold irridescence of original scarab beetle from times of old. These are quite long ( 4") and have gunmetal french wires. The back of the gunmetal settings have the marking Dh& c or OH & c. THese are really neat one of a kind very gothic earrings.
