This pendant is created from a handcarved blue/green Turquoise gemstone. It measures a dainty 14x18mm in size and I have set it into a 14k gold plated bezel and hung from an 18 Inch, 14k gold plated Singapore chain with a 2 inch extender. You can see the relative sizing in the photo where I am holding them in my hand. They are very minimalist and petite in size.
There are only 2 of these pendants available. One is a bit darker in coloring ranging towards a blue while the other is more green. The beauty of NATURAL GEMSTONE is that no two are alike and you can choose the one you prefer for a unique, one-of-a-kind statement piece that only YOU will have. Each comes gift boxed in a 100% recycled Kraft box.
The Scarab, in ancient Egyptian religion, is an important symbol in the form of the dung beetle which lays its eggs in dung balls fashioned through rolling. This beetle was associated with the divine manifestation of the early morning sun, Khepri, whose name was written with the scarab hieroglyph and who was believed to roll the disk of the morning sun over the eastern horizon at daybreak.
Since the scarab hieroglyph refers to the ideas of existence, manifestation, development, growth, and effectiveness, the beetle itself was a favourite form used for amulets in all periods of Egyptian history for protection and luck.
**NOTE: I am a real person who handcrafted each and every piece myself from design to completion. I process orders as they are purchased, so, depending on the size of my work que (how many orders ahead of yours) it can take me between 2 days to 2 weeks to create and ship your piece to you. I thank you in advance for your understanding of what truly handmade means and I appreciate your business.
