Each earring will be different and truly one of a kind ... just like you!

- symbolism -
In heraldry, the skull is symbolic of mortality and a reminder that death comes to all living things ... the Latin sentiment MEMENTO MORI means remember your death and is meant to inspire you to intentionally think about your own death every day, as a means of appreciating the present and focus on the future.

- approximate measurement (including top loop) - 1/2" x 3/8” (15mm x 10mm) - each varies a bit
- shown with a US dime and an inch ruler for scale
- every earring is uniquely different and will vary slightly from the photos
- wax seal charm metal - sterling silver (.925 silver)
- ear wires - sterling silver

Impressed in wax, cast in sterling silver, from just a portion of an antique Georgian wheel wax seal (1714 - 1830), shown in the photographs, the full size wax seal depicting a skull surrounded by the Latin sentiment ES FVI SVM ERIS which translates AS YOU ARE NOW SO ONCE WAS I, AS I AM NOW SO MUST YOU BE.
