VITA BREVIS SKULL Tapered Band Ring - Starting at $229
This large tapered skull ring with scrollwork brings to mind the Latin term, "Vita Brevis," which can be translated as "art is long, life is short." Acknowledging mortality can remind us of how precious life really is. The skull was a popular theme in Victorian art and jewelry and has seen a revival through the steampunk movement of today.

CRAFTSMANSHIP and MATERIAL OPTIONS
We can make any ring in various metals - sterling silver, Continuum silver, 10K, 14K, 18K and 22KT golds (yellow, rose, or white), palladium and platinum. Many of our rings are also available in stainless steel or two tone combinations. Please do a search for VITA BREVIS to see this ring in more metal, width and stone choices. If you don't see exactly what you want please let us know as we are always happy to make it in the metal or width of your choice, when possible, or to add a stone, change a stone or alter the size of the stones. Contact us for any design modification and we will make the changes, send images, and quote you a price for the custom piece of your dreams.
Each piece is made individually. We never start with a mold or size a mass produced ring. While common practice for many jewelers, the detail we achieve cannot be replicated in a molded piece..
All our jewelry is made in the USA from recycled metals and is set with lab grown or conflict free diamonds and gemstones. Every design is our own creation, from design to finish. We produce each piece individually - casting, finishing, stone setting and polishing each one by hand. Our studio is located in Tucson Arizona where my family has lived for three generations.
Our rings come with a lifetime guarantee for the finish and sizing. We will resize your ring at no charge at any time.
To create your individually handcrafted piece, our current workload requires approximately four weeks from the date of order to the date of shipping. If you need your piece sooner, please contact us to see if we can accommodate your request at no extra charge. Customized pieces may take longer. Please contact us for an ETA.
DETERMINING YOUR CORRECT RING SIZE
For the long term enjoyment of your ring, it is essential it fit well. It's generally best to have a local jeweler size your finger. Most will have narrow and wide ring sizing sets. Use whichever is appropriate for the ring you are ordering. Wide rings may require a slightly larger size.
I DON’T SEE MY SIZE IN THE DROP-DOWNS
If your size is less than 4 or greater than 14, or if you need a quarter size, please let us know. We will be more than happy to work with you.
Because every ring is one of a kind, we have the flexibility to make this design slightly wider or narrower depending on your preference. Want diamonds or two tone? Glad to oblige. Different gems, both natural and lab grown, as well as various metals are available. Contact us for quote. Let's work together to make the ring of YOUR dreams.
