Skull Earrings and Skull Jewellery From Lunar Rain
Skull Earrings and Skull Jewellery From Lunar Rain by George Collins
We have a variety of skull earrings and skull jewellery at Lunar Rain in our All The Devils Are Here Collection. This jewellery collection is inspired by witchcraft, hell, monsters and memento mori jewellery.
Since the 1500’s, memento mori jewellery is derived from the Christian tradition of using death as a reminder to be virtuous in life. The phrase ‘memento mori’ in Latin means ‘remember you must die.’ Skulls are symbols of the memento mori philosophy. Many pieces of memento mori jewellery are also engraved or enamelled with words, messages and biblical indications.
These statement skull earrings are symbols of life and death. In 16th century Europe, the contemplation of mortality and impending death was a theme in art and literature. Memento mori jewellery in the 17th and 18th centuries turned into mourning jewelry to remember dead relatives or loved ones. There was also jewellery that was both mourning and memento mori jewellery.
