Description

This striking necklace evokes decorative elements found on a 16th-century rosary pendant in The Met collection. Possibly made in Flanders or Mexico, the original pendant is beautifully crafted in silver gilt with rock crystal and inlaid with mother-of-pearl. It was once attached to a string of beads used in the recitation of a devotion to the Virgin. Here, the crowned skull announces the constant proximity of death; such a poignant image is known as a memento mori, as it encourages one to reflect on the transience of life.

The necklace was handcrafted with the finest materials in the New York City atelier of goldsmith Donna Distefano, whose luxurious jewelry is inspired by her love of medieval art and literature, Renaissance paintings, and ancient techniques.
