The Details...

This gilt metal bracelet features 14 multicoloured enamel scarab beetles along its length. It fastens with a bolt ring and measures 18cm in length. 

A Short History...

In 1922, Howard Carter discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun and, thereby, ignited a Western fascination with Ancient Egypt which permeated the Arts. Jewellery designers created heavily stylised profiles of people and hieroglyphs taken from tomb walls, as can be seen in this brooch. Reviving Egyptian motifs was a real 1920s celebration of adventure and breaking down cultural barriers.
