The first piece in our Vanitas Collection, inspired by mourning and tombstone imagery from the 18th - 19th centuries, reminding each of us that we are all awaited by the same fate. This ring bears a winged death's head on either side, the first gravestone symbol used by the Puritans, serving as a reminder of what ultimately will become of us all. Resting upon the shoulders of this ring are small hourglasses, another popular symbol of mortality from the 18th century, reminders that our time on this Earth is finite. Atop these two hourglasses rests a single 7x5 oval faceted labradorite stone. These symbols remind us to live our lives the best we can and stay humble, for we all become dust in the end.
