These beautiful earrings feature large black scarab cabochons. The oval cabochons have carved beetles on the tops. The scarab beetle was one of the most popular amulets in ancient Egypt because the insect was a symbol of the sun god Re. They are set in ornate granulated gold frames. The bright gold finish resembles the high carat gold of the original museum piece. MMA WAG jewelry pieces are high quality reproductions of ancient artwork and antiquities from the Metropolitan Museum of Art Walters Art Gallery. The earrings sold in their gift shop.
