Centuries ago beautiful jewelry was created to remind people of their own mortality. Referred to as Memento Mori - meaning "remember you must die" - this jewelry served as a warning to prepare ourselves for whatever other realm awaits us. Memento Mori were often decorated with skeletons in coffins mounted on rings, and engraved with phrases such as "life is fleeting." Only jewelry can convey a harsh reality in such elegant form.
