Handcrafted using the impression of an early 19th century British wax seal, this pendant features a skeleton in his coffin, long thought to symbolize death, in actuality it is emblematic of life & truth.
The skeleton is a pictorial symbol of the Latin motto ‘Memento Mori, Memento Vivere’ or ‘Remember you must die, so remember to live’.

About Bronze Bronze jewelry has a warm luster and a lovely rich antique gold color. Over time it will form a dark patina, this gives each piece its own individual, organic, and antiqued finish. If you prefer you can always bring back its original shiny finish with a jewelry polishing cloth.
PLEASE NOTE: Before you order please check sizing information - it can be hard to gauge jewelry sizes from pictures alone. On some of the seal pieces the text is so small as to be read only with a magnifying glass making the meaning a secret between you and those you choose to tell.
