This necklace features a small skull pendant on a 20” (51cm) fine trace chain in Sterling Silver, shown photographed on both male and female mannequins. You can choose from a bright silver or oxidised silver chain (oxidisation gives a darker, antique look). If you would prefer a different length or style of chain all of the pendants and chains are sold separately, so you can combine them however you like to make your own personalised necklace.
For centuries the skull has been used to represent death and mortality. Commonly featured in Victorian mourning jewellery along with the phrase ‘Memento Mori’ (‘Remember that you will die’), the idea is to make us appreciate the transience of time and to make the most of life.
Pendant measures 7mm x 10mm
Chain measures 20” (51cm) long
