This pendant features a pressed glass scarab beetle, hand-painted in green and brown tones. The bail of the pendant is most likely constructed from sterling silver. The pendant measures 5cm x 3.5cm. 

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 images taken from tomb walls and incorporated them into their work. Reviving Egyptian motifs was a real 1920s celebration of adventure and breaking down cultural barriers. 

Wear it With...

In wonderful condition, this pendant is perfect for an Egyptian Revival collector.

Inspired by Nature

The jewellery within the Gemma Redmond Vintage collection has survived to this day because it has been well cared for throughout its lifetime. It is important to continue to care for the jewellery that you buy from us to ensure its continued preservation. Here are some suggestions:

- Be sure to store your jewellery within the boxes that we provide to ensure that it is protected. This is especially important when travelling with your pieces.

- Try not to get perfume or hairspray on your items. These liquids can damage the materials that our jewellery is made from.

- Try not to drop your jewellery or catch your jewellery against hard surfaces. If this happens over time, the findings and fixings can loosen and wear.

- Try not to get your jewellery wet. Some costume jewellery manufacturers utilised water soluble glue in the making of their pieces. Getting your jewellery wet could cause rhinestones and other details to fall away over time.

- If you wish to clean your jewellery, use a soft polishing cloth or a soft brush.
