Cimetière des Saints-Innocents, known colloquially as Les Innocents, was a Medieval-era Parisian burial ground that was shut down in the late 1700s due to public health concerns. Its inhabitants were exhumed and now line miles of tunnels under the streets of Paris, part of a massive ossuary known as the Catacombs. A pair of tiny, detailed skulls, cast in sterling silver that has been partially oxidized. Each skull measures 3/16" wide by 7/32" tall. Post is 20 gauge (suitable for non-stretched piercings) and comes with a sterling silver butterfly back.
Beautifully cast, carved, and hammered pieces by Arcana Obscura are so striking for their darker silver tone that almost mirrors a pewter color, but will not tarnish or oxidize to lose its tone. We have loved this brand for YEARS, and we are so thrilled to carry the full collection.
