A popular symbol used by the Ancient Egyptians, scarabs are said to symbolise rebirth and renewal. Perhaps you're starting a new chapter in your life, or want to help manifest changes - this gold scarab charm could be a perfect addition to your charm collection!
The charm is made of 18ct yellow gold (tested). It is marked on the fixed bail at the top but we can't quite make it out fully. It looks likely to be the Egyptian hallmark for 18ct gold.
The charm measures approx 13.4mm tall (approx 18.2mm tall including the bail) by approx 7.7mm wide by approx 4mm deep and weighs approx 1.1g. The scarab is detailed to the front and is lifted from the plaque at the back so there is some open space in the middle. The back of the charm has some lovely engraved detailing too.
Condition - The charm is in good vintage condition with some light surface wear to the gold. The bail is currently soldered closed. Please see photos.
*Please note the box and chain pictured are not included in the sale but the charm will be shipped in a new presentation box and pouch.*
