Stag Beetle Ring – This handmade ring is created using the lost wax casting method. We carve the piece in wax and then cast it in the metal of your choice. The stage beetle measures 2″L and 1″w at legs or widest part.

The stag beetle in Ancient Egyptian symbolism was called – Keph-ra. He was the ‘Egyptian god of midnight who bears the sun through the underworld’. The Stag Beetle is the male version, the scarab beetle is the female.

The English name is derived from the large and distinctive mandibles found on the males of most species, which resemble the antlers of stags. Thus we have the derivation of the first part of the symbolism – which we can find by understanding the symbolism of the stag. (A deer’s antlers may represent spiritual superiority. Like a crown, the antlers grow beyond the body of the deer, bringing it closer to the sky and therefore making it sacred. The stag is the king of the forest, the protector of all other creatures.)
Male stag beetles use their jaws to wrestle each other for favored mating sites in a manner that parallels the way stags fight over females. Fights may also be over food, such as tree sap and decaying fruits. Despite their often fearsome appearance, they are not normally aggressive to humans. There is thus also a connection with mating rituals and sex, and thus the added symbolism is related to the use of Sex magick and Sexual stimulation as a means of generating spiritual experience.

All of our rings are made to order, so we can make any size needed. (Allow a few days.) Our Sterling Silver Ring comes packaged in a Metal Tin, Bronze come in a Fabric bag.

Sterling silver can tarnish over time. We recommend using a flannel polishing cloth to clean the ring. Yellow bronze has a heavy copper content so it may discolor the skin with wear, this discoloration can be washed off.

This gorgeous piece is stunning on it makes a lovely mate to our cicada ring. I wear this ring daily with the cicada ring it is twice the weight of the cicada ring so it is heavy and statement size, but it is very comfortable and does not get in the way.

We can make the stag beetle in a pendant as well.
