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 fantastic Memento Mori bracelet features two skulls - the eyes are adorned with faceted rubies which impart a stunning hue.
The band is etched to resemble a coiled serpent and is .10" in width. Each skulll measures approximately .40" wide and .40" in height.
Composed of solid sterling silver with hand oxidized finish.
Weight - 26 grams (quite substantial).
The open band style allows a fit for wrists measuring up 5.50" - 8"
