19th C. Memento Mori PendantMemento Mori is a phrase derived from Latin, meaning "Remember Death". Memento Mori is not a scary or a evil thing. It's important to remember and celebrate the life of your ancestors and to know that they are always with you. The skull is a reminder of your mortality, Christ's victory over death, and that this world is not our permanent home. This Memento Mori has a crown with a cross on the top. The crown symbolizes the reward you will have in heaven after the trails in this life. This skull with rose cut diamond eyes came from a private collector in Europe. It's set inside a feather like diamond bezel. Complete with 1.40 tcw diamonds, 14k yellow gold 8.44g, and rhodium sterling silver. The bale has a 4mm opening.
