This pin is nothing short of spectacular! Talk about Egyptian Revival and one of a kind! It is also in perfect condition. It measures about 1.5+ in diameter and is raised up high so the individual enamel patterns on the side can show. The detail in the piece (smallest tesserae that I have ever seen), including the gold and enamel work is unrivaled.
The scarab's wings are iridescent gold! This piece was in my personal collection and I never wore it. It is also a pendant and has markings on the back, which I cannot discern. It tests and is guaranteed at 18K. The color gold is delicious.
