MEMENTO MORI / MEMENTO VIVERE
MADE IN U.S.A
The ONLY U.S.A. made premium jewelry brand
MEMENTO MORI means "Remember you will die." Let this side of the pendant remind you to live every day to its fullest potential, for we are not promised tomorrow - just as the phrase conveys, death is inevitable. This phrase and its imagery (usually a human skull) has been around since the medieval period with roots in classical antiquity and Christianity, but it is still just as relevant today. This is not a morbid message, but instead a positive reminder to make the most of every moment you are given, to recognize the opportunity in every day we wake up and keep breathing. How do you want to live life? To its fullest, or with regrets of joy undiscovered? Life is fleeting, so treasure every gift, and guide others to that same appreciation for life.
MEMENTO VIVERE means “Remember to live.” This phrase originated in the mid 19th century, supposedly created from classical Latin as a direct counterpart to MEMENTO MORI as a reminder of life and the pleasure of living. While MEMENTO VIVERE is less common than its mirror phrase, we believe that both phrases can impart a positive outlook. It's easy to allow the tides of life to carry us along into passivity or to succumb to an unhealthy preoccupation with mortality. We have to fight this tendency and remember that we have lives left to live, and to live them to the fullest. For anyone struggling with a dark period or mental health issues, this phrase can help you see the beauty and light around you - the things worth living for. Make the most of every day with this pendant as a reminder to take some risks, take some rest, and appreciate every piece of joy that life has to offer.
We appreciate the dual nature of this juxtaposition of ideals, and enjoy the contrast that the images of life and death create. Wear this pendant with the same side always presented to a viewer, or switch between the two sides depending on which phrase you want to focus on for the day.

How to use your pendant to create positive change in your life.
Love my necklace
Super quick shipping and Molly was really nice ! I bought my necklace as I lost my best friend ,my world and my ESA dog,Khloe my pitbull in Oct to cancer. It's my reminder to live each day as everyone does have to die. Life is really short, so this necklace means a lot to me. My pitbull had the best 9years before cancer called her back home and she had to say goodbye for now..I had no regrets for my pup except for her to be here much longer with me...so this is My reminder to live each day with my pups Scottie n Sally ! Truly love my necklace. I battle depression and anxiety, so this is my reminder to make the best of each day and be happy in the moment. Thank you for an important necklace. I wear it daily,I don't take it off by choice,but never had any issue as it's .925 and the .925 rope necklace makes a huge difference. I'll go with a 22inch next so I can layer them! Will purchase again from here,keep checking often for any new pieces ! Really love this company and their silver jewelry! Id def recommend the silver rope necklace,I'm happy I got the silver rope chain!
Great Product. Even better customer service.
Will definitely be purchasing from again. Quality product and responsive customer service. Overall 5/5. Thank you
It’s nice. The pendant is about 1”x0.5”. I wish the skull and other character were bronze/gold, but oh well. I’m not a jewelry person at all, but the dual-message of this spoke to me enough to get it (I’m the kind of person that needs to be told that there is more to life than work). I haven’t taken it off since.
