Memento Mori was a popular concept in Georgian England. Its literal translation is “Remember you will die”, and the pieces contain sombre imagery such as skulls and skeletons. Whilst it may seem a morbid choice, the style was intended to remind people of the brevity of life, and to therefore seize the day and enjoy living.
A truly fascinating and fabulous piece which is sure to look great when worn and remind of the importance of life.
