Memento Mori Signet Ring RG-795
- Based on Ring Found During Jamestown Excavation
- Designed to be Used as Letter Seal
- Made in the USA
Based on a gold signet ring found during the Jamestown excavations that is thought to have belonged to Captain Christopher Lawne (1619). Memento Mori is Latin for “remember your mortality.” It was often practiced as a spiritual discipline to remind oneself that life is short. Like the original, the design is cut in reverse to be used as a letter seal.
