Scarabs are one of the oldest symbols used in jewelry.  The scarab represents resurrection and eternity.

Scarabs were a popular symbol for ancient Egyptians.  Ancient Egyptians used the scarab to symbolize their sun god.  They believed that the movement of a beetle rolling waste items across the ground was like the Sun moving across the sky.
