A mourning ring is a very old tradition in jewelry of creating a ring to commemorate the passing of a loved one. Rather than commemorating a death, our Memento Amori pieces commemorate a love between two people.
The phrase memento mori encompasses all mourning jewelry means, "remember death". Our Memento Amori collection is a play on words meaning, "remember love".
Yes! Our Memento Amori pieces -- from skull rings to necklaces -- are comfortable and durable enough for everyday.
We were completely inspired by Victorian mourning jewelry which is the height of sentimental symbolism. We wanted to create pieces that are equally meaningful and symbolic.
While in the past skulls have symbolized the end of a life we are using skulls in this colllection to signify a love that is greater than our mortal being.
Skull rings and jewelry require the same care as all fine jewelry. We have care and cleaning tips here.
Our pieces are made in 14k gold with brilliant white diamonds in the eyes. Most pieces also contain a red garnet, a favorite Victorian gem and a symbol of trust and affection.
