Product Details

A remarkable antique Victorian locket from the late 1800s featuring a sky-blue agate in the centre which has been overlaid with a new skull and crossbones with twinkling old mine cut diamond eyes to create a Memento Mori inspired centrepiece. 

Such macabre imagery was common in Memento Mori jewellery, which literally translates as “Remember you will die”. The pieces were commonly decorated with skulls, crossbones, and coffins but the morbid themes were not a celebration of death, rather a reminder to live your life well and cherish each waking day. 

The piece is all 18ct gold with beautiful, chased patterning on the back and front and its original glass window within, where a lock of hair would have been held but is also perfect for a small photograph.
