The Staunton&Studds Memento Mori Cufflinks are a stylish reflection of an inherent truth: we are all mortal. The skull and crossbones plays a prominent role in the iconography of the Knights Templar, the Freemasons, and various secret societies and fraternal organizations. The symbol of Memento Mori ought to constantly remind us that life is fleeting and that we have little time to complete our great work. Initially created and offered only for the brethren of the Masonic fraternity, the cufflinks add style and class to any French cuff, and make the perfect gift for the man about town. Originally available in limited edition only to Freemasons, a form of these cufflinks has been offered to the public due to popular demand.
