Handmade 24K Gold Plated Marigold Silver Necklace - Dia de Muertos
Materials: .925 Sterling Silver and 24K Gold

The cempasúchil, or marigold, holds a special place in Mexican culture, particularly during Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). This flower, known as the "flower of the dead," is believed to guide the spirits of deceased loved ones back to the world of the living. The Aztecs associated the cempasúchil with the goddess Mictecacihuatl, the Queen of the Underworld, who oversees the afterlife.

During Día de los Muertos, families create altars (ofrendas) adorned with cempasúchil flowers to honor their ancestors. The bright petals and strong fragrance are thought to help lead the souls back home. The cempasúchil has also been used in ancient rituals and as a medicinal herb, further embedding it in Mexican tradition. My cempasúchil necklace captures this rich cultural heritage, symbolizing the profound connection between life and death and honoring the memory of those who have passed.
