I understand this absolutely will not be everyone’s taste. Nor the black diamonds (which I absolutely adore the reflective nature of). I have medical background, I’m a slightly 90s goth kid, I love the spirit of “remember to live” memento mori Victorian pieces. Caysie and I had fun with a quirky idea of mine. I hope you enjoy even if it’s not something you would personally wear.

Do you have it yet, cause we need lots more pics!!! The detail work is exquisite.
Just the CAD. She’s hasn’t given me a time to completion yet. I’m just going to guess 3-6 weeks. The world is insane and I’m super patient. If it gets done sooner than that I’ll be thrilled!

I like it! :love:
Although I’d be tempted to try and make the little skulls ‘talk’ just like I do everytime I walk past snapdragons!

Will this be a standalone or stacked?
I’m not sure yet lol. Mostly I had this idea for this skull band that wouldn’t go away. Ugh. I’m sizing it in a way that it will fit on 6 fingers. Everything but ring and pinkies. So likely it will get stacked eventually.

Just for fun all the metal colors. Can you imagine all the possibilities for white diamonds or colored gems.

'Guess I'll ever wear my own out - no metal, no stones, amen!, but it is obvious how such a ring can be Loved. I'd say different eye colours will work [skulls may well all the same color, as long as they no longer have eyes, but these do].

This is what CAD is for, IMHO.

all the relief areas of the skulls will be antiqued. Only the bezel stations will be gems.

@Polished1911 I like it. I might be 40 (cough cough) something but I do like to rock a bit of biker look with my leather jacket and DM's! :evil2: It's edgy but understated!
LOL cough, me too! I just turned 41 but thanks to genetics I still get carded. Last year I wore a floral dress with a leather jacket to my sister’s wedding. Along with knee high DMs. There’s always a little edgy to my attire. If I’d worn something different my family might have looked at me weird.

Whoa I love this edgy look! The 3 prongs on the black diamonds are such a nice touch. I think rose gold lends itself very well to black diamonds. Is this your wedding band?

Way too old, used to be punk kid here! It's metal and I love it. Metal choice is whatever you prefer, but the memento mori color I see most would be yellow. I can't wait to see this on your hand!
Possibilities are endless with ruby, emerald or opal as the gem choice as well...blood rep/renewal/soul and all. *I just want one of my own :twisted2: obviously.
For fun I'll show you the ring I'd get if I had the funds. You'll appreciate it I think- not strictly MM but using the same imagery of the time period.

I am a Deadhead (Grateful Dead, you know) ... so this gets "yes" from me! For a true Grateful Dead moment if you paired this with something with red roses, or maybe a rainbow CS half eternity you would be my favorite PSer... (you would bump @mrs-b and @Phoenix)...

A lot of the skulls in skull jewelry (my brother collects skull jewelry) look funky but the workmanship on yours is superb. I showed him yours and he was really enamored. Many will envy your ring.

I thought about yellow gold. But everything I have is white gold, platinum, or rose gold. and I really love the look of rose gold and black. I can’t wait to see this on my hand too =)2 I wish I could afford to make 12 different metal/gemstone versions of this.

That ring!!! Thank you for sharing it! A snake ring is towards the top of my wish list.

I'm 54 and wear skull jewellery. Used to wear my skull studs with a string of pearls. Love the contrast LOL.
Don't wear the pearls anymore...but i do wear my skull mala-type necklace now and again! 20200617_121602.jpg
I love your necklace! I have skull studs I wear with a Pearl and onyx necklace. It’s perfectly quirky.

Rose would be beautiful and a little unexpected. I like it.
I wish you would make me one too;))

Isn't that Lalique just crazy amazing?! And with a price tag to match...I just want to try it on, just once, run a light thumb over the detailing. This week on Lottery Pinings:lol:

Im not a metal head or a hippie but I am someone that is what society would label as incredibly weird or witchy and have been obsessed with death since I was a young child. I have made jewelry with ashes and hair and treasure others' momento mori jewelry as well.

This is stunning & incredibly unique!
I wouldnt be surprised if she put it in her shop as a custom!

Rose gold and black diamonds will look fabulously dark!

Oh & I have a pair of earrings that I made with 18k yellow hooks and with carved pearl skulls, of which micro facteted red garnet drops hang from! So they look like a little pearl skull with a glittering drop of blood hanging from each!

Not gonna lie - not my taste at all but the workmanship looks divine! Since this is what speaks to you, I think she did a fabulous job with it!
Thank you! I was nervous to share a slightly out of the box piece. I enjoy all the bling here even if it’s not something I would personally wear. I have two pieces by CvB and the CADs are amazing but the finished product is always better.
