This gorgeous Turquoise Scarab Necklace brings together gemstones and sacred meanings traditionally used by the Egyptians in ancient times.
In Ancient Egypt the Scarab beetle symbolised eternal life and rebirth. scarab beetles held great religious power and protective abilities.
Kephri, the scarab-headed god, rolled the sun across the sky each day, where it died at night and was reborn in the morning. Scarabs also embodied the cycle of creation due to the 'magical' way the beetles produce offspring, which you can read more about below.
