With just a few days left in the year, we are proud to present our annual Limited Edition Angel Heart Ring: The Sacred Scarab. Iridescent Beetle wings are eternally preserved in this radiant, hand-made stone - an ode to the Scarab, one of the most important religious symbols in the mythology of Ancient Egypt. Throughout his career, Alex Streeter’s work has drawn much inspiration from the Ancient Egyptians, as Alex considers the Pharaohs to be the original occultists.
The Ancient Egyptians saw many similarities between the cycle of the sun across the sky and the scarab’s habit of rolling dung balls up from within the ground. As the sun and scarab emerged each day, the world was reborn to start anew. Eventually the Scarab came to be associated with the ancient deity known as Khepri, the god of the Rising Sun. A man with the face of a scarab, Khepri was considered to be the god of creation and renewal of life, whose name literally means “"He Who is Coming into Being…”
We feel this year’s Limited Edition Angel Heart Ring contains an important message for the year of 2020, looking forward into 2021. While this year has been a time of great devastation and loss, it has also been a time of reinvention and introspection. Just as the sun rises after a period of darkness, we anticipate the coming months to be a time of great transformation and resurrection.
Much as the scarab amulet provided the Ancient Egyptian wearer with protection and confidence in the certain knowledge of reincarnation, it is our hope that this Limited Edition Angel Heart Ring will bring you strength in this year of rebirth and new beginnings.
These beautiful Limited Edition stones vary widely in color, ranging from green to blue, purple and more rarely copper - no two specimens are alike. Most importantly, these beetles are sustainably harvested, only collected after their natural death.
Each Limited Edition Sacred Scarab arrives with a custom Black Lacquer Pentagram Box, a numbered certificate of authenticity as well as a Sacred Scarab souvenir card signed by Alex Streeter himself. The Limited Edition Sacred Scarab will be available through early next year, until which time it returns to the great halls of Limited Editions past.
