The Latin term, "Vita Brevis," 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.
This ring is solidly crafted in .925 sterling silver and weighs in at almost one ounce! I can also make this in 10KT, 14KT 18KT, or 22KT, yellow, white or rose gold, platinum, palladium, or most other metals. Please contact us for a quote.
Each ring is individually carved and crafted to your size. Many jewelers duplicate their original models with rubber molds, but you just don't get the same crisp detail in a mass produced copy. All of my rings are created from a first generation wax model. This ring is heavy enough to stand the test of 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.
