A statement talisman not for the faint of heart. Inspired by classical memento mori totems, our Death Rattle necklace is the perfect morbid modern heirloom.

The necklace is decorated with a thorned wreath adorned skull, which rests upon a rope bound and pebble dash textured kite shape pendant. The pendant is finished with cascading rope tassels with beaded ends. The pendant is suspended by a heavy intricately woven rope chain. We custom make each of these necklaces by hand, from the metal of your choice.

We offer a custom engraving option to the back of this necklace, so you can wear 2 ways and also memorialise a loved one lost. This is available with all silver and gold purchases, free of charge.  We can accommodate up to 3 letters, please leave a note during checkout with your request.

INFO ON MATERIAL OPTIONS

Brass - Brass is a base metal used primarily in fashion costume jewellery and requires extra care to prolong it's appearance. Brass will naturally tarnish over time so we suggest keeping these pieces stored away when not wearing. It is also worth noting that some peoples skin PH is naturally acidic and may react with brass jewellery leaving green marks on the skin. This is not harmful to the wearer in any way however can be frustrating. If you have experienced such a reaction in the past, we suggest investing in silver or gold options as these are metals suitable for every day wear, are hypoallergenic and will not react with the skin.

Plating - We use heavy electro plating on top of solid silver, with a thickness between vermeil and filled. Unlike brass plated jewellery, plating on top of solid silver ensures that your piece will retain it's value over time. Our plating is hardwearing but will gradually dull and fade over time. We recommend not wearing plated jewellery every day, not wearing in water and like brass, keeping stored away when not wearing. We can re-plate this piece for a small fee in the future should you wear this piece every day and it needs some TLC or we can strip the plating off should you ever want it to go back to being a silver piece of jewellery. 

Here you can find our international ring size, chain length and stone size guides to help you find the perfect fit the first time you order.

CHAIN LENGTH GUIDE

All of our necklaces have a suggested length in the listing, however some products also offer a length customisation option.
If you would like a custom length, take a look at our length table and illustration to get a feel of how the chain will sit on the figure before ordering (the stand is proportionate to a UK size 10).
Products that do not offer a custom length, due to the intricacy of the design, are one size fits all and have an additional chain extender fitted.
Products that offer a standard length or custom length do not have chain extenders fitted.
Chain extenders can be purchased separately HERE if you’re not ready to commit to one length.
