This large version of the handmade memento mori ring features a winged skull cast in solid brass, sterling silver, or 14k gold. The iconography of the winged skull, also known as "Winged Death's Head" is common on gravestones throughout Western and European history and is interpreted as a sign that death is not the end of one's journey. This ring follows the rich tradition of memento mori, a Latin phrase meaning "remember death" to remind the wearer to live every day to its fullest.
The ring is hand-carved in wax and cast locally in NYC. It can be a statement, a memorial or an historic reference for anyone! Wear it alone or in a stack of rings for a subtle gesture towards our universal mortality.
