Egyptian Scarab Ring

The scarab or dung beetle was chosen as an amulet due to its habit of rolling a ball of dung into its nest to feed its larvae was thought to resemble the passage of the morning sun across the sky (manifestation of god Khepri). The beetles unique ability to move items larger than itself across the land was considered to be a sign of strength.

The word scarab can be interpreted as form, to be created, to come into being, rebirth. Amethyst was used in the middle kingdom (Egypt) 2055 - 1752 B.C.

When worn as a ring the scarab faced outward. When needed for a seal it was turned around to reveal hieroglyphs, which acted as a signature. All the signet rings from subsequent periods derive from this design.
