Unbelievable Skeletons Unearthed From The Catacombs Of Rome

If this is true I'm appalled. The complete waste of gold and jewels that could of went to feed, cloth, teach, or house people or help the world in some meaningful way. Just complete BS. Unbelievable Skeletons Unearthed From The Catacombs Of Rome

An English pendant, c.1540-50, in the form of a skeleton within a coffin, a symbol of death and a memento mori.

This unique and enchanting mermaid ring is an Omnia Oddities exclusive, featuring lovely art-deco inspired design elements. In its center, a beautiful natural 8mm white or black (dyed) pearl is nestled safely in the arms of a dainty mermaid.

Pendant with a Memento Mori, second half of the 16th century, gilded enamel. Musées Royaux d’Art et d’Histoire

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. Further to this, the element of the full skeleton inside the coffin crystal completes the sentiment. There is nowhere on the jewel that death is not represented.
