Memento Mori Skull Ring with Emeralds
This outstanding Memento Mori skull ring with emeraldshas 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.
Emeralds are symbolic of unconditional love, friendship, protection and wisdom. Ancient Romans and Greeks believed it to be representative of the Goddess Venus and perceived emerald gemstones as a conveyor of hope and love.
The skull measures .25" in width.
-heavily plated 18K gold over sterling silver
Looks amazing worn solo or stacked with other gemstone rings from our collections. This would make a unique wedding or engagement band.
