Vintage Sterling Carved Amber Scarab Beetle Pendant
A fantastic Vintage sterling silver and carved amber pendant from the 1960's! This lovely pendant features a scarab beetle carved into an oval piece of amber. At first glance, the piece stands out for its rich hue and beautiful translucent quality, but upon closer examination the scarab beetle design gives it an exotic Egyptian feel. The back of the amber is carved with several shallow geometric designs that are reminiscent of ancient Hieroglyphics. The pendant hangs from a sterling silver bail, which attaches to a long sterling chain. This gorgeous piece would make a wonderful addition to any collection!
Measurements: The pendant hangs approximately 2 1/2" long, is 1 3/8" wide and 1/2" thick. The sterling chain is 26" long.
Condition: The overall condition of the pendant is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to either the amber or the silver setting.
