This ring dates from 1728; the absolute height of the memento mori style. It not only features the affectation of the ‘coffin’ shaped crystal, but it encapsulates the skeleton inlaid in black enamel around the band.

*memento.mori*-the phrase possibly originated in ancient Rome: A general parading through the streets during a victory triumph, had following behind him a slave, tasked with reminding him that, victory is fleeting - conveying this with the warning, "Memento mori" ...or... "Respice post te! Hominem te esse memento! Memento mori!": "Look behind you! Remember that you are but a man! Remember that you'll die!"[Tertullian/Apologeticus]
