The perfect amulet for strength and protection. This mystical Memento Mori skull necklace is composed of double fire process mix of ceramic and enamel with a base of sterling silver.
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 skulls are available in the following combinations:
*Black Spinel eyes with gold teeth and sterling silver chain. *Ruby eyes with sterling silver chain. * Blue Topaz eyes with silver chain. *Gold coloured enamel eyes with 18K yellow gold plated silver chain. *Pink with clear zircon eyes and 18K rose gold plated silver chain. *sterling silver with rhodolite garnets and 18K rose gold plated silver chain.
Please note - each piece is hand painted and therefore may have variations in texture and tone.
