This small engraved locket vial is reminiscent of memento mori style lockets of the georgian era which opens up to store small things inside. In this era when death was not such a taboo subject, beautiful objects and jewellry were created to remind people of their mortality and to make the most of this life and be prepared for what may ahead. Design elements of this piece are also infused with a balinese influence from our wax carver, made’s own traditional style of floral motif. Available in a choice of oxidized sterling silver or 14ct gold plate, this pendant slides along a 56cm sterling silver chain with 4cm extension. It’s moderate length makes it great for layering with shorter charm necklaces or the longer existence necklace.
