This Ankh and Scarab pewter pendant featuring an Ankh with a Winged Scarab is approximately 2 inches long x 1 inch wide and comes on a story card with a 33 inch long black cord and is available in either a pewter or antique brass finish.

The Ankh is an ancient Egyptian symbol that is formed by an oval or point-down teardrop set atop a T shape and is known as key of life, the key of the Nile or crux ansata. A hieroglyphic character that represents the concept of eternal life. The Egyptian gods are often portrayed carrying it by its loop, or bearing one in each hand, arms crossed over their chest.

The Scarab had became enormously popular in Ancient Egypt they symbolized hope and the restoration of life. Amulets in the shape of a scarab were used for personal or administrative seals, diplomatic purposes, to commemorate or advertise royal achievements, good luck charms, to ward off evil and the protection of mummies.

Artisans made scarab jewelry in many designs including winged scarabs using precious gems and painted clay whose colors were rich and beautiful. Blue symbolized the Nile River. Red symbolized Ra. There were touches of yellow for the desert and sun. Green was used to emphasis growth. Over time, the scarab became a sacred symbol.

Material
Pewter Pewter is a malleable metal alloy, traditionally 85–99% tin, with the remainder consisting of copper and other metals. It has a low melting point and is very easy to cast in molds. It has been used since ancient times for everything from jewelry to table wear and was once called the "poor mans silver". Generally pewter has a grayish/silver semi-dull finish, though this varies depending on the metals combined with the tin and can be colored black or other shades or plated with gold or silver. Pewter is generally hypo-allergenic and will not tarnish or react in most conditions. Note it can break or crack if flexed multiple times and rings cannot be re-sized, though interior ring springs or other adjusters might be used.
