Ancient Egyptian Jewelry: Ankh with Scarab Necklace.
The ankh symbol—sometimes referred to as the key of life or the key of the nile—is representative of eternal life in Ancient Egypt. The ankh represents the union of man and woman and symbolizes the creation of life through this union. Ancient Egyptian gods are often portrayed carrying it by its loop. The Ankh can represent our physical life on Earth or eternal life after death either in heaven or the underworld.
The scarab beetle represents life and death. It was also interpreted as a symbol of resurrection. It protects those who wore it as an amulet while alive from illness. In Ancient Egyptian funerary art, the scarab was employed as a symbol of immortality and resurrection, as well as protection and transformation.
