Rare 19th C Victorian 18k gold,Coral Cameo&Diamonds Memento Mori Skull ring.NR! Click images to enlarge Description I am please to offer from my private collection this MUSEUM antique 19th C Victorian 18k solid gold,Skull Coral cameo&Diamonds Memento Mori ring. The skull cameo  is hand carved from a monolite piece of the highest quality red coral from the Japanese Sea!  Signed with the English Victorian hallmarks for 18k gold. NO RESERVE!   8.5g heavy. Size EU-52/ US-6.5/UK-M The ring is a link to the tradition of the memento mori - an object designed to remind us that life is brief and that we should seize the moment while we are here. Since the beginning of time,the skull is been used as a symbol of mortality, victory, the ultimate Memento Mori. The skull represented the contemplation of eternity. In Elizabethan England, it was an emblem of bawds, rakes and sexual adventure. It’s a symbol men, in particular, have always loved to paint, carve, cast, and wear. A must for every serious collector or museum. Provenance:This unique piece comes directly from the famous Skulls collection of Dr.Atanas Karamov,who was the personal physician to King Ferdinand I of Bulgaria.   Dr.Karamov was also a member of the first Bulgarian Regular Masonic Lodge named “Balkanska Zvezda” c1890's .  His collection contain over 1200 skull watches,skull goblets,skull victorican jewelry etc...
