Coming sometime by the end of the year (Amazon claims one available now) from Factory Entertainment is the Universal Monsters Mummy Prop Replica Ring. The is a faithful reproduction of the ring that we see on Ardath Bey (Im-ho-tep) in the original 1932 version.

The ring comes in one size (Men's 13) and will be limited to 500 copies worldwide. A cast mummy's hand display (from Boris Karloff's own hand) accompanies the piece. The price is $249.95.

Here is the ad copy from the Factory Entertainment website:

Universal Monsters
The Mummy Ring Limited Edition Prop Replica

Unsing rare behind-the-scenes photos and many hours of artifact research, Factory Entertainment  has recreated one of the most beloved classic Universal Monster props to date: Imhotep's Scarab Ring as worn by Boris Karloff in 1932's The Mummy. 

Each ring comes as a US Men's size 13, and is 18K gold plated with an antique finish and genuine onyx stone. A solid polystone mummy display hand - Molded off of Karloff's actual hand casting - accompanies every ring.  A numbered limited edition of 500 pieces, each Scarab ring is presented in a full color collector box and includes a prop story booklet, a numbered certificate of authenticity and mummy hand display.

Let's hope they issue a less expensive version later, such as they did for the Dracula prop ring. Two hundred and fifty bucks buys a lot of Starbucks venti's.
