Here is a vintage pin by Burt Cassell, a designer based in Rhode Island and New York City, who made high quality jewelry during the 1950s through the mid 1960s. His gold-filled designs enhanced with semi-precious stones were mainly sold through jewelry stores and not department stores. An advertisement from 1961 describes his work as "The Original Scarab", with each gemstone carved with Egyptian style hieroglyphics.
