In Ancient Egypt, the scarab beetle was seen as the epitome of divinity.
As a symbol of rebirth, it was believed to illustrate the Sun’s heavenly path
across the sky. Produced from precious metals and gemstones, the beautifully
crafted sacred beetles were popular Egyptian talismans, sometimes used as
currency. Thanks to its scarlet color, ruby is associated with life: it restores
vitality and inspires to find happiness.
