Hand-casted in the USA, this double sided wax seal necklace features the Latin words PER ASPERA AD ASTRA, which means “Through hardship, to the stars.” This pendant features half the phrase, PER ASPERA (“through hardship”), and a path through mountains with stars in the distance on one side, representing the hardships we must face. On the reverse side it features the other half of the phrase, AD ASTRA (“to the stars”), and the north star in full view, the goal having proven worth the journey.

This motto sometimes appears as AD ASTRA PER ASPERA and though both iterations of the phrase are correct, this one is less common. Other translations include "through adversity/difficulties to the stars" and "our aspirations take us to the stars." ASTRA is the Latin root for "astronomy," ASPERA directly translates to "rough" in English, as in "rough terrain." The English word "exasperate" draws its origins from the Latin ASPERA, and indeed many trials in life prove frustrating. However, this phrase recognizes the truth that in your attempts to achieve great things, you will have to pass through some rocky times on your way to your goals. This jewelry is meant to inspire perseverance so that no matter what the world throws at you, you can relish in the challenge because the stars wait just beyond the struggle.

"Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength." -Arnold Schwarzenegger

AWESOME

I lose count of how many a day the pendant reminds me of the “journey” that life is, and how “worthy” it is. Regardless of the rough times, we must keep going

Beautiful necklace

I love this necklace and its message, it is similar to a phrase my dad used to write in my birthday cards, so it reminds me of him. The quality is excellent, the images on the pendant are nicely detailed. I especially love the side that shows the stars. I got the 22 inch cable chain and it’s perfect! A nice sturdy chain. I have been wearing it every day. This is my second purchase with this company and I’m very happy with both of my necklaces.
