Memento Mori Jewelry, including rosaries, with its unflinching use of symbols of death and its purposeful message, "Remember you must die" was widely worn in Western Europe during the 16th century. A constant reminder that life is temporary and heaven should be the ultimate goal, its intention was to encourage virtuous living. Later skulls were used as a sign of mourning the loss of a loved one.

Tricorns ranged from the very simple to the extravagant, occasionally incorporating gold or silver lace trimming and feathers. In addition, military and naval versions usually bore a cockade or other national emblem at the front.
