On offer is this beautiful ancient
Egyptian gold and amethyst scarab ring. This ring dates to the
12th Dynasty when amethyst scarabs were popular. Most excavated
examples like this one, tend to be simple and without an
inscribed seal or cartouche. The gold ring (band) is of simple
crescent form, with tapered ends that fit within the central
piercing of the scarab. The scarab is able to swivel. A similar
amethyst gold and scarab ring can be seen in the British Museum (CLICK HERE), with others in
the Met. This is an excellent and very rare early Eyptian finger
ring of a type that seldom appears on the art market. We were
fortunate enough to be able to acquire it from an old private
collection from France along with other early Egyptian jewellery.
