Wendy Brandes Unisex Skull Bones Locket/Mechanical Signet Diamond Sapphire Ring

$12,000

About

Locket ring opens to reveal a skull. 18K yellow gold, satin finish. White diamonds (outer, bones shape), totaling approximately 12 points. White sapphires (inner, eyes), totaling approximately 30 points. Size *6. Limited-edition, number 3 of 3. Made in New York City. *Some resizing potential, please inquire. Note that this size and style works well for a man's pinkie ring, as well as a women's ring. For a high-resolution video of this piece, please visit our storefront. I've always been inspired by skulls, as artists have been for centuries. This type of jewelry is known by the Latin phrase "Memento mori" -- "remember you are mortal." I interpret it as a call to live life to its fullest. The biographies of real women have always fascinated me, especially those seated upon or in line for a throne. "Juana la Loca" was the daughter of Isabella and Ferdinand of Spain, and the rightful ruler of the kingdom of Castile. I created a limited collection of skull jewelry to honor her. Our skuil styles are always very popular near Halloween, but this beautifully crafted jewelry keepsake can be worn year-round. To learn more about this piece or the inspiration behind it, please contact us.

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.
