I have a pair of pewter femur bones for sale at POTUS31.com that this ring is based on. The “marrow” is hollowed out for size and comfort. As it turns out, the ring is my first adjustable (since the ends don’t join).
O.K., so if you’re not self-centered enough to know what Memento Mori means, loosely translated, it means remember your own death. If you were to phrase it in a positive light it means carpe diem, or cash your day rate check. (Oops, sorry, different diem.)
Because I tend to deflect our daily trials into metaphor, I prefer this ring to symbolize our mortal coil, or Portia’s father’s less-than-whimsical game of caskets. This ring has many more than Shylock’s 3 caskets to choose from, but of course, you can only see 3 at once. Tempting! Which is your casket; and does it contain silver, gold, lead, or — most importantly — the hand of Portia?
