The skull is a reminder that all things will pass, that there is wisdom in living in the face of such mortality, and, therefore, we should live fully and mindfully. This limited edition, symbolic and intricately carved tiny skull pendant measures approximately 1/2” in length and 5/8” wide offered on an 18” recycled 18K gold chain. It is finished with a spring ring closure. Vintage ebony is a beautiful, natural material. It is dense and strong, however, like all natural materials it requires care, we ask that you do not put it in contact with water or any chemicals that may harm the wood.
