A delicate memento mori ring with three skulls on the front and a band of hand-carved bones, in the tradition of medieval memento mori rings. Memento Mori is a latin phrase reminding the wearer to "remember death" so that one can live every day life to its fullest. Rings of this style have been worn since ancient times, but reached their height in medieval Europe, where the church and monarchy ruled life and culture.
We can set the gold or silver versions with gemstones in the eyes, and can work with you to source a rainbow of sapphires, rubies, or emeralds! Please reach out if you are interested in a custom gemstone ring!
This ring is available in sizes 5-12; we can also make this ring in half sizes: just leave us a message in the "notes to seller" section at checkout. Since it is made to order, please allow up to 2 weeks for delivery, but we try to get everything out within 1 week, and if we have your size in stock, we will let you know and ship ASAP.
This ring was originally carved in wax and cast locally in NYC.
