These earrings, displaying a striking Egyptian Revival design, were crafted by the iconic artist and designer Louis Comfort Tiffany for Tiffany & Co. Scarab beetles, showcasing a shimmering iridescence, are executed in Tiffany’s signature Favrile glass and bezel set in 18K gold. The glass was made to resemble the glass of ancient Egypt discovered during various 19th-century excavations that helped fuel Louis Comfort Tiffany’s and the public’s interest in ancient Egyptian motifs.

Best remembered for his stained glass windows and lamps, along with his Favrile glass creations, Louis Comfort Tiffany did not begin crafting jewelry until 1902. Inspired by the fluidity and translucence of ancient Roman and Middle Eastern glass, Louis C. Tiffany produced blown glass with opalescent and iridescent colored finishes, which he dubbed "Favrile," between 1891 and 1928. The present piece combines the best aspects of Tiffany’s diverse output, including his famed Favrile glass, a keen eye for design and the nature-inspired Art Nouveau aesthetics he perfected.
