Ever elegant, Catrina poses among flowers and bones in a brilliant necklace designed by Maria Belén Nilson. The necklace is crafted of sterling silver and detailed with oxidized accents that recalls the beauty of antique Mexican jewelry.

Catrina is the original creation of José Guadalupe Posadas, renowned author, journalist and political cartoonist (1852-1913). He is credited for popularizing the Day of the Dead celebrations, especially through the creation of skeletal cartoons that capture the Mexican attitude towards death. The most renowned of these is La Catrina (meaning 'dapper'), and she is always elegantly dressed, featuring a wide-brimmed hat with colorful flowers.
