1920's Sterling Silver Gold Wash Scarab Swivel Poison Ring
A beautiful 1920's scarab swivel ring made in sterling silver with a nice gold wash. The scarab is also locket, which opens up to reveal an interior chamber. Inside of the scarab locket you can also see the markings of the Egyptian symbology, which is cast on the underside of the ring. The scarab is entirely cast, including the rope-like wire wrapping design on the band of the ring. The secret quality of this ring makes it quite unique and a great collectible. Originally, it would have been used as a poison ring. The interest in Egyptian symbology and ancient mysticism flourished several times in Europe, beginning in the 1850's, all the way into the Art Nouveau era. This ring is from the later resurgence of Egyptian Revival, and has some of the qualities of the Art Nouveau designs. The ring looks contemporary and is also a classic historical piece o jewelry. The scarab was a symbol in ancient Egyptian cultures representing good luck. The scarab is also the symbol of the god Khepera, who rolled the ball of the sun across the sky to "rebirth" every morning, represented resurrection and life. This ring can also be considered a wonderful talisman. It is a ring size of 10 but can be easily resized. It has no marks but the band tests to sterling as the gold wash is worn there. Weighs 3 grams.
