Memento mori items trace their origins back to ancient times. Therefore societies and cultures across the world embraced the concept of mortality as a central theme. Stemming from Latin, "memento mori" translates to "remember that you must die." This philosophical perspective, often associated with Stoicism, was a reminder of life's impermanence and the inevitability of death.
During the Middle Ages and Renaissance, memento mori motifs flourished in European art, books, and culture. Therefore they aimed to provoke reflection on life's fluid nature, encouraging individuals to live virtuously and mindfully. Hence this sentiment extended to jewellery, with skull necklaces becoming popular adornments.
However these pieces are not morbid, but rather a reminder to embrace life while acknowledging its finite nature. Custom-made Memento Mori jewellery to this day continue to endure as potent symbols of introspection and mindfulness, carrying with them the rich history of reflection on human existence.
