skull ring / memento mori collection
Inspired by the Victorian tradition of 'memento mori' jewelry, these tiny stud earrings are a modern take on a meaningful sentiment which translates roughly to 'remember, you must die'. In the 16th and 17th centuries, it became fashionable to wear objects decorated with skulls, skeletons and coffins as a reminder of the fragility of human life. Wear this ring to keep close someone you've loved and lost, or as a meaningful reminder to live in the moment.

If you do not know your ring size:
Please leave a note at checkout requesting a ring sizer, and I will mail you one free of charge. Once you've decided what size you need, please email me and I will begin working on your ring.
EXPECTED SHIPPING DATE FOR MADE TO ORDER ITEMS: please allow time for me to mindfully craft your made-to-order items. Typically they will ship four to six weeks after the order is placed.
A NOTE ABOUT HANDMADE: Your ring will look very much like the ones in the photo, however, please keep in mind the nature of handmade. Each ring is individually sized and polished by my two hands, which means that there will be slight variation from one to the next. This means that the ring I make for you will be uniquely yours.
