    This vintage scarab bracelet has sterling silver links and mounts with molded-glass stones. The colors are tiger’s eye, chrysoprase, carnelian, lapis lazuli, and variegated agates.

This bracelet was made in the 1920s or in the 1950s, during an Art Deco Revival when scarab bracelets were again all the rage.
