DUM SPIRO SPERO "While I Breathe, I Hope" - Brass Coin Necklace
Part of our Captain’s Script coin collection.
Hand-crafted from start to finish, this stamped coin features the Latin phrase DUM SPIRO SPERO, which means “While I breathe, I hope.”
DUM SPIRO SPERO is a constant reminder that while we still live, nothing is futile and that hope springs eternal. Even in our darkest moments, we can remember that our state of life is in itself an act of defiance against the forces that would undo us. Fight on for as long as you draw breath, and never surrender to defeat.
This phrase is also the state motto of South Carolina, where our studio resides.
Coin pendant is 1" in diameter.
Purchase this coin as a keychain instead of a necklace here.
If you are unsure about which chain length to order, please read our suggestions on the FAQ page.
Please note: All our brass pendants are raw brass, meaning they are not electroplated and will develop a beautiful patina over time. We recommend polishing it with a soft cloth to help keep your pendant's original shine if you prefer the bright metal look.
It never showed up. I want my necklace or my money back.
Great and happy that I have this item
Dum Spiro Spero was always my motto even before the pandemic! So I'm twice as delighted with my new brass necklace, simple and beautiful. So much that I ordered a similar item right away which should be delivered tomorrow!
