A wonderful Memento Mori style stick pin from the late 20th Century topped with a silver skull painted in white enamel and set with two sparkling old mine cut diamond eyes (approx. 0.06ct each).

Such macabre imagery was common in Memento Mori jewellery, which literally translates as “Remember you will die”. The pieces were commonly decorated with skulls, crossbones, and coffins but the morbid themes were not a celebration of death, rather a reminder to live your life well and cherish each waking day. 

The long pin has a lovely spiral in the centre and is modelled in 15ct gold. It’s a great collector’s piece and will look wonderful pinned to a lapel.
