Quite an amazing and stunningly beautiful 9ct buttery rich yellow gold Scarab faience ring dating from we believe to be from the third Neo-Egyptian revival period.

The first Neo-Egyptian period was brought about by Napoleon's journey to Egypt (circa 1805-1810).  The second revival was caused by the opening of the Suez Canal (circa 1870) and the third was initiated by the discovery of King Tut-Ankh-Amun’s tomb (circa 1922).

With a large glazed faience blue hued scarab measuring approximately 1.7cm x 1.1cm set to the centre, to a fine rope twist border at its base.  The shoulders are intricate and carved in a motif reminiscent of an Egyptian lotus or perhaps a rounded tapered snakes head which then leads to a slim and sturdy half round shank.

The scarab is in perfect condition, no signs of wear, this piece has been treasured and cared for.
