This highly detailed Memento Mori skeleton hand bracelet is composed of 18K gold plated silver and 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.
The elegant skeleton hands are adorned with six rings, one of which is topped off with a ruby on each hand. The body of the bracelet is crafted to resemble anatomical bones. The bracelet band has a bit of flexibility and can be opened gently to be put on at the wrist.
The bracelet width is approximately .05".
Weight - 12.50 grams.
Each hand measures 1.40"L from the wrist to the tip of the finger and .75" across.
