Hand-casted in the USA, this double sided wax seal pendant features the Latin words MEMENTO MORI with a skull on one side, and your custom phrase on the back.
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.
This is a chance to create a necklace with your personal motto, a special memento, a significant date, or initials and names of loved ones in your life - whatever your reason or reminder is to enjoy life to its full potential. Up to 3 lines can be stamped on the back of the pendant, up to 8 characters per line (including spaces, no special characters). All custom text will be center-aligned.
