About Skull Jewelry:
Wearing skull and bone jewelry goes back to ancient times. Ancient civilizations like the Egyptians and the Aztecs used the skull as a symbol of the cycle of death and rebirth. Holidays such as the Day of the Dead is celebrated in most regions of Mexico and parts of Latin America with bone and skull as motifs in everything celebratory. In Europe during Elizabethan times, the skull became a powerful motif for underworld societies. Today, skull jewelry is back with various additions to it: with wings (which symbolizes freedom), with crossbones (signifying eternity, danger or poison), with butterflies (symbolizing the changing nature of life), with snakes (a depiction of immortality) and with crosses (denoting mankind’s beginnings).
Please Note: Pendant can be removed from the chain.
The nearly-indestructible and masculine nature of stainless steel is appealing for many jewelry styles. It has a similar appearance to platinum and polishes to a glistening sheen. Any scratches that may occur from day to day wear can be easily buffed away without endangering the piece. Unlike traditional gold, silver or platinum jewelry, stainless steel jewelry is not poured into molds, but is usually hand-cut from a solid piece of steel, leaving no seams or weak spots. With stainless steel, your jewelry will last a lifetime.
Stainless steel was first recognized in France in 1821 by metallurgist Pierre Berthier. He realized the iron-chromium alloys maintained resistance from acids and recommended their use in cutlery. After several corrosion-resistance related discoveries and patents in Europe and the United States, Harry Brearley in England discovered a modern blend of stainless steel alloy. When it was announced by The New York Times in January of 1915, he was officially credited with the invention of this impressive modern metal.
