Fabulous “Memento Mori” sterling silver men’s Biker ring.
Original unique design with beautiful details and amazing art work. Rare piece, top quality, best craftsmanship, custom made. Excellent new condition, heavy, stamped 925 . Top dimension 23×23, weight 20-23 grams depends on the size. Sterling silver custom made “memento mori” skull men’s ring. Top of ring features skull over a book one of the most emblematic symbol of the “memento mori”.Around the symbol is the sign “memento mori” which means “remember that you have to die”. An object, such as a skull, intended to remind people of the inevitability of death. The sides of the ring are also very emblematic there are an hourglass with wings up and a skull on both sides. These symbols associate with life, death, permanence, the past, the future, and the temporary. For those conscious of the world’s fragility, the hourglass represents life. It was the only symbol that could depict both the past and the present at the same time, so it came to represent both life and death. Its sands would flow regardless of the elements around it—just as a person’s life winds down at a steady pace, regardless of their good or bad deeds—so it was also used to instill a fear of death into people.
I actually own this ring and it is awesome! It’s nice and “chunky” and it definitely makes a statement! I’m always being asked to explain the inscription and when I do it never fails to invoke a rather interesting response! I love this ring and it truly does remind me not to waste the precious time I have here because one, yes, you too must die.
