This mystic Memento Mori skull necklace is composed of hand oxidized sterling 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. This ornate Memento Mori style medallion is truly an amazing piece! The perfect talisman for strength, eternal love and protection.
Composed of hand oxidized sterling silver.
The pendant measures 1.50"W x 2"L (including the bail) weight - 18 grams
