Design Specifications

Designed from an old Indian Chief liberty coin. With the Latin inscription "Memento Mori", which is an artistic or symbolic reminder of the inevitability of death. Memento mori jewellery with skull or coffin motifs became popular in the late 16th century.  Interpretations of the expression differ throughout the ages. We find that to be the most significant element to this motif - that the interpretation, is upon the wearer. 

The difference between the Gold and Brass will be the slow oxidisation/ageing of the Brass coin.  

  • Made from 925 Sterling Silver & 9ct Yellow Gold
  • Face size; 16 x 16mm
  • Average Weight; 16.5grams
  • Each coin individually numbered!

Individually Made To Order

What does it mean, 'individually made to order'?


A very important element of the creation of our pieces, is the focus on the individual ring and it's purpose of being produced soley for you.

We are hoping that heirloom status is one day achieved with your piece of jewellery, or at the very least, it holds some significant value to you. 

We feel this is only properly recognised if the ring is made specifically for you, once you commission it through a sale - not sitting on the shelf waiting for ownership. 

So every piece is individually made to order out of the Crooked Howlet Designs studio, right here in Sydney, Australia. 

Earn the heirloom.

    Keeps all the promises and more

    I was as a child is on Christmas day when the package arrived. Full of penned up anticipation, a bubble ripe to burst. Imagine when I saw the ring was so much more than anticipated: the pencil marked box, the ring newspaper, the ring size measuring thingy… and then absolut perfectly polished silver ring with the gold coin - I just sat there staring at it for a while trying to hold back all the happy noises but eventually failing and grunting und humming and shouting-out and laughing. I knew this a band for life.

    And now I am about to get my third CHD ring, and the reasons behind it can only be felt, like sitting by a crackling chimney fire with the people you love and care for and who love and care for you after a deliciously savory diner… comforting, welcoming, bonding. A place you want to stay at and will always come back to.
