New Sizes and Newly Improved! We had to find a new silversmith to make our Memento Mori Rings, so while we were at it, we improved them by adding a beefier shank. So while the new price is a little higher than what's advertised in our catalog, this is a much nicer ring and well worth the difference. We've also added two smaller sizes!
Based on a gold signet ring found during the Jamestown excavations that is thought to have belonged to Captain Christopher Lawne (1619). Memento Mori is Latin for “remember your mortality.” It was often practiced as a spiritual discipline to remind oneself that life is short. Like the original, the design is cut in reverse to be used as a letter seal.
Cast in sterling silver here in the U.S.A. Available in U.S. sizes 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, and 13. We do our best to keep all the sizes on hand (so to speak), but occasionally one size may sell out more quickly than others, in which case, there will be a 2-3 week delay.
