Wendy Brandes Limited-Edition Memento Mori Skull and Bones Solid Gold Cufflinks

$10,000

About

18K yellow gold, satin finish. Black rhodium detail. Limited-edition. Made in New York City. Wendy Brandes Gold Collection. Skull imagery has long been used in memento mori jewelry. The Latin phrase "Memento Mori" means "remember you are mortal." In ancient Rome, when a victorious general paraded through the city, a slave was assigned to murmur "Memento mori" in his ear as a reminder that those who are raised high one day may be brought low the next. Our skuil styles are always very popular near Halloween, but this beautifully crafted jewelry keepsake can be worn year-round.

About the Maker

Wendy Brandes Jewelry

About the Designer: Jewelry design is Wendy Brandes’s second career. Wendy started out as a business journalist at the Wall Street Journal and CNN, later switching to pop-culture coverage during her tenure as managing editor of People magazine’s website. Her story-telling skills remain as strong as ever, but they’re now expressed in carat weight and grams of gold instead of word count. Wendy's “Fine Jewelry for Witty People" is distinguished by its stellar workmanship; warm, satin finish; hidden and symbolic details, including mechanical parts; and wry commentary on everything from history to iPhone addiction. Her award-winning 18K yellow gold collection -- featured here -- is inspired by fascinating women, and all designs are limited-edition or one-of-a-kind. Wendy has been featured in the New York Times, W Magazine, and British Vogue, and her jewelry has been spotted on Rihanna, model Bella Hadid and Britney Spears.
