Dor Smokey Quartz Beetle Earrings

To ancient Egyptians, the scarab was sacred. The cute, not-so-little beetles were symbols of renewal and regeneration. (One, in the form of a powerful deity, did roll the sun across the sky every day, after all.) English jewelry god Alex Monroe took a liking to the beautiful bugs as well. That's why he created these stunning representations of the scarab's European cousin, the dor beetle. Formed using a centuries-old metalworking process, each elegant golden insect hangs from Alex's signature bud setting. Within the bud, a rich drop of smoky quartz shimmers like that ball of fire in the sky, just waiting for a nudge from its loyal beetle buddy. Handmade in the United Kingdom.
