This 18 carat gold vermeil tooth pendant necklace is inspired by the concept of Memento Mori, made from ethically recycled silver and 18 carat gold vermeil plating. A bold piece of statement jewellery which could become your family's contemporary heirloom.
All of the pieces in the Memento Mori collection are inspired by parts of the human body which have played a role in how our species have evolved over time. Our teeth define us as a species, informed by the food we have eaten for centuries. And this gold tooth necklace celebrates our beautiful humanity.
The design of this piece is three-dimensional meaning you can switch it around depending on your preference day to day or what goes best with your outfit. It also makes it versatile and beautifully tactile. The quality gold vermeil extendable chain brings even more versatility, as you can wear it at different lengths to match your look.
Check out our gold vermeil tooth earrings and our gold vermeil hand necklace for something to match this striking gold tooth pendant.

"I find teeth fascinating. We can't live without them and after we're gone, they're one of the only things left. For me, they are a clear sign of life, death and the journey along the way."
