From the pictures I've seen of Egyptian jewelry, most of them seem to depict animals. The beetle in the top of this picture is very popular but I'm not quite sure why. Their colors were very vibrant and harmonious, standing out against their white attire.
My spirit animal the cat in my stone, carnelian (according to Celtic beliefs). However this is actually a Gold finger-ring. Carnelian, in form of cat; wedjat-eye on under-side. Ancient Egypt, from the Third Intermediate Period, 1070 - 712 BC.
