Memento Mori Skull Ring
This Memento Mori skull ring is composed of 18K gold plated silver and is adorned with black spinel gemstone eyes. It has been created as a tribute to honor the historical artform of mourning jewelry; the Latin words Memento Mori translate to "we all must die”. A frequently misinterpreted tradition that is often considered to be a dark reminder of our immortal nature, while it is in fact more intended to commemorate and celebrate a life. These sentimental keepsakes help us remember that in the balance of all things, there is always light (life), just as there is dark (death). The beauty of this balance is reflected in each piece of the Memento Mori collection, using common themes such as skulls, flowers, and serpents, which endearingly represent eternal love.
Black spinel traditionally represents devotion and empowerment
The skull measures .40" in width and the snake band is approximately .10".
