A meaningful solid 14k gold skull wax seal necklace charm with Latin sentiment OMNIA VANITAS which translate ALL IS VANITY. The word VANITAS is Latin and means emptiness, worthlessness and unreality. It's describing the meaninglessness of earthly life and the transient nature of all things.

- symbolism -
In heraldry, the skull is a symbol of mortality and a reminder that death comes to all living things and life is short so make now matter.

- approximate measurement - 3/4" by 5/8" (20mm x 18mm)
- please note the S in VANITAS is slightly faint and incomplete because it is very thin and not engraved deeply enough on the original glass seal to get a good impression
- shown with a US dime for scale
- wax seal charm metal - solid 14k yellow gold
- charm only but you can find sterling silver chains here.

Hand crafted from a Georgian era (1714 - 1830) multiple glass wax seal set displayed in a lovely red leather case.

 Impressed with history!
