Memento Mori Necklace

Regular price $225.00 Sale

Sold out. Visit us at Oddities Flea Market to shop our latest vintage skulls & skellies!

A breathtaking necklace that not only looks amazing but carries a message to remind us of life's ephemeral nature - as precious as a sparkling diamond. This fabulous memento mori piece is crafted of a vintage rhinestone necklace adorned with a beautiful metal baby skull. A unique and spectacular find.

Despite our best research we do not yet know who made this piece, or when, but they did a high quality job of soldering the skull to the metal and crystals, and adding an extension to the chain. We cleaned this magnificent find and further enhanced it by replacing eight crystals around the skull to maximize baby's bling.

Care note: please protect baby from humidity and extreme temps, as the skull is soldered to the crystals beneath it, making them extremely difficult or impossible to replace if they suffer moisture damage. 

Measures 8" on either side from skull to clasp. If you wish to wear this higher as a choker, we can shorten the chain to 7" on each side (or whatever length you desire) for a minimal fee.

Shown styled with our Space Rocks bangles, Black Hole earrings, and Lavender Sparkle ring, all available in separate listings. Please email to get on the waiting list for a Mama Spider brooch. 

Memento mori (a Latin phrase that reminds us that we all must die) is an artistic or symbolic reminder of the inevitability of death.
