These rings come as a pair. When placed on the finger together they take on the form of the sacred dung beetle who the Ancient Egyptians believed were the creators of life and associated with the god Khepri.

The female scarab would lay her eggs in the burrow with the dung and her young would feed on the dung until they were ready to emerge. The Egyptians, however, believed that the young scarab emerged spontaneously from the burrow as if created from nothing. Thus, believing he was a self-created god. The scarab beetle also lays its eggs in carrion, leading the ancient Egyptians to speculate that those scarab beetles were created from dead matter. As a result, Khepri was strongly associated with rebirth, renewal, and resurrection.
