Three of Tutankhamun’s Rings

(a) The green nephrite signet shows the King and Min. (b) The three-dimensional bezel is formed from a lapis lazuli scarab flanked by an inlaid falcon and moon barque on a cartouche-shaped base. The inlays are green jasper and glass. (c) The scarab bezel of the gold ring is of chalcedony; the underside shows Thoth and the udjat.
