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 Victorian mourning style medallion has a base of rhodium plated sterling silver and the skull and flowers are plated in 18k gold. The eyes are set with black spinel gemstones and the Art Nouveau floral garland is adorned with amethyst. Truly an amazing piece! The perfect talisman for strength, eternal love and protection.
The pendant measures 1.50"W x 2"L (including the bail)
weight - 18 grams
Chain choices include: 18K rose gold plated silver, oxidized silver or 18k yellow gold plated silver.
