Sterling Skull Disc Ring with Patina
The impression is made in wax from an antique glass intaglio then cast in metal.
Skulls in heraldry symbolize mortality, a reminder that to live is to die and all living things come to the same end no matter the path they take. They are meant to remind us to live each day like it's our last.
The Motto reads “Es, Fui, Sum, Eris” or “Thou art, I was, I am, Thou will be”. (Note the top of some of the letters my be cut off).
Memento mori is the medieval Latin Christian theory and practice of reflection on mortality, especially as a means of considering the vanity of earthly life and the transient nature of all earthly goods and pursuits.

................WHO WE ARE.....................
At VINTAGLIO we value the craft of jewelry making above all else. We are first and foremost creators. Using hot wax, molten metal, torches, hammers, (and a glass of bourbon) we form one-of-kind 18KT gold and sterling pieces of the highest quality.
We are a unique high-end jewelry line that has spent years (and again copious glasses of bourbon) perfecting the wax sealing and casting process to offer you the most stunning wax impression jewelry in the world. But we are much more than just beautiful impressions, we are a "study" in wax. While we love metal, wax is our favorite medium so all of our jewelry is crafted from hand-worked wax.
VINTAGLIO strongly believes that the true beauty is achieved through the ancient art of wax sealing so we would NEVER use molds or metal clay craft our jewelry. It is this time honored process that makes us not only the highest quality wax seal jewelry on the market but one of the few that is truly made from sealing wax.
Because we believe our original source of gold should be treated like gold, VINTAGLIO uses 50% recycled metal in all our casting. We also source sustainable materials whenever possible.
All jewelry is proudly handcrafted one at a time in Dallas, Texas USA.

Global Postal Shipping use a combination of carriers to help ensure a timely delivery. Etsy combines tracking information for each part of the package’s journey to show the history but there can be long gaps between movement. Tracking will be sent in an email when shipped but can also be viewed in the Etsy app and on Etsy.com in your account by visiting (You > Purchases and reviews). This is the only place to review tracking as there is not a number like you might be accustomed to.

Love this ring. I'm using it as a wedding band when I fight or travel. It rests flat again my finger and I hardly feel like I'm wearing it. Nice to have a little momento mori reminder every time I look down at my hand too.
