Beetles play an important role in ecosystem health by eating dead trees, helping with decomposition and pollination. In Ancient Egypt, scarab beetle imagery was used in amulets and jewelry as a powerful symbol of transformation and protection. Like the beetle's Ancient Egyptian symbolism, this piece can transform from a necklace to a pin.

Many of our stones are one of a kind and if a particular piece has sold, we will source gemstones in similar shape, size and color. Due to fluctuations in the gold and stone markets, prices are subject to change. We are happy to work with your own stone(s).
Birds, bats, bees, butterflies, beetles, and other small mammals that pollinate plants are responsible for bringing us one out of every three bites of food. They also sustain our ecosystems and produce our natural resources by helping plants reproduce. This nearly invisible ecosystem service is a precious resource that requires attention and support — and in disturbing evidence found around the globe, is increasingly in jeopardy. Jennifer Dawes Design is a proud sponsor of the Pollinator Partnership. Learn more about how this system supports you, and how your actions can help support healthy and sustainable pollination.
