It's not every day an incredible new superhero makes their debut on the big screen. That's why Warner Bros. SA decided to commission a one-of-a-kind prize for a competition celebrating the release of its latest blockbuster, Blue Beetle.

Blue Beetle tells the origin story of the DC comic book character of the same name — and the Scarab, a sophisticated piece of alien biotechnology that's responsible for giving him his extraordinary superpowers.

Jeweller Nevin Sher created this gold-and-sapphire scarab ornament as a prize for a competition celebrating superhero Blue Beetle's big screen debut.

Taking inspiration from the Scarab, jeweller Nevin Sher (aka The Diamond Guy), handcrafted a unique collector's item for one Blue Beetle fan to win.

The resulting prize, a decorative gold scarab beetle studded with sapphires and featuring the DC logo on the back, is worth more than R100,000. “It will be framed as an ornament, but if the winner would like, it could also be made into a pendant,” says Sher.

To stand a chance to win this bespoke treasure, superhero enthusiasts were asked to watch the Blue Beetle trailer and answer a question about it via an online entry form. Those who answered correctly were entered into a random draw — and Zaahid Khan was named the lucky winner.
