What's the story
Renowned for her avant-garde creations, Danish designer-metalsmith, Josephine Bergsøe, has built an extraordinary collection of wearable art pieces. Her collections are distinguished by their contemporary, out-of-the-box concepts, and exhibited in a magnificent range of original jewelry that moves away from traditional design patterns.
From Danish royalty to international celebrities, the Bergsøe brand has attained worldwide fame for its unique jewelry.
Bergsøe’s organic designs do not follow any rigid patterns or shapes. Every design is handmade in the Danish workshop by artisans who shape the designer’s creative vision into a collector’s piece that encapsulates sustainability, brilliance and creativity.
What's great about it
The Memento Mori Necklace symbolizes the theme of mortality, mourning and the inevitability of death. Josephine Bergsøe uses this design to remind us to live a life that is centred around goodness and piety.
The intricate artistry of this necklace is reflected in its meticulous detail. The pendant is a tasteful fusion of 18 and 22 karat gold and features an unusual mix of bezel-set diamonds, pear-shaped sapphire, and an arresting coral hand-carved skull that forms the centrepiece of the necklace. The pendant hangs from a 43cm chain set with Keshi pearls.
The Memento Mori Necklace is designed for the woman who values her individuality and does not follow conventional fashion styles.
How to wear it
The distinct design of this necklace is perfect for the woman who wants to experiment with offbeat, captivating jewelry. It stands out on its own as a spectacular statement piece, and matches fabulously with any attire in plain hues, particularly when it complements smartly-cut ensembles.
To add a dash of sparkle to your persona, pair the necklace with other bold, striking jewelry pieces from the diverse Bergsøe collections.
