1,000.00

Antique Victorian hand painted memento mori necklace pendant. Converted from earrings into this beautiful wearable piece. Made from 9k yellow gold with fine enamel patterning. The intricate sepia toned painting is protected by an oval piece of camphor edge glass. 5/8" tall, not including the bale. Unique, rare, dark and beautiful.

Memento mori is the name given to jewelry from the 16th-18th century that was created as a reminder of our impending death. It is a latin phrase which translates to “remember you must die.” We love these pieces as they remind us to seize life and live for today.

Please note this necklace should not be worn in water to preserve it's delicate painting.

Pairs perfectly with one of our 14k solid gold chains.
