Memento mori means 'remember that you must die' and to cherish each day as it is a reminder of the imminence of death. Rather than being macabre, memento mori jewellery is meant to act as a reminder to cherish each day you’re alive. Memento mori jewellery was typically decorated with skulls, crossbones, skeletons, coffins, and worms which all seems a little odd today. Wonderfully hand carved from natural salmon coral, and threaded with an unmarked silver pin, he actually has quite a friendly jovial face, with beautifully clear striations and inclusions.

This beautiful piece of jewellery began its journey many years ago and may have some very minor imperfections collected along its travels. By purchasing this piece you will investing in a brand new chapter of its story as well as making a positively conscious choice on sustainable fashion. Vintage jewellery for the beautiful you on our beautiful planet.
