Ad Mortem Paramus (we prepare to death)
Fascinating, feared and venerated since the beginning of time, death has been depicted through art and jewellery as meaningful power using symbols like skeletons, skulls, snakes, time.
Symbols relating the the transient nature of life and its fleeting pleasure as in this dramatic Art Deco diamond memento mori skull ring in a meaningful trilogy conformation: yesterday, today, tomorrow.
The sober elegance and the powerful message, not to forget the iron law of time, which passes and consumes us all, is alive yet muted in this striking memento mori ring.
The moralistic reference to the fleeting time and importance to enjoy each moment, is here represented by an elegant and austere three dimensional silver skull, amazingly handcrafted with dark patina given by the kiss of time, almost speaking to the viewer. Likely a later addition, as replacement from a center gem to a more meaningful timeless symbol.
Flanked on sides by two bright old European cut diamonds totaling approx .39 Ct set on elegant collet sparkling with pure light contrasting yet complementing the austerity of the message, symbolizing eternity, light and life.
These collectable treasures have unique stories behind each, immortalizing the lives of those gone before. Rendered with subtle elegance in a three stone classic design enhanced by engraved shoulders.
Artfully handcrafted during in 14 Kt white gold and silver by a master goldsmith during Art Deco era, marked.
Very good overall condition commensurate to use and age.
