Double Sided Wax Seal Necklace - MEMENTO MORI / MEMENTO VIVERE
Hand-casted in the USA, this double sided wax seal pendant features the Latin words MEMENTO MORI with a skull on one side, and MEMENTO VIVERE with an old sailor’s face on the other.
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. This is not a morbid message, but instead a reminder to make the most of every moment you are given. Life is fleeting, so treasure every gift, and guide others to that same appreciation for life.
MEMENTO VIVERE means “Remember to live.” It's easy to allow the tides of life to carry us along into passivity. We have to fight this tendency and remember to live our lives to the fullest as we walk through every day. This side of the pendant is 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.

So far and til the end of time I am enjoying wearing this, it doesn't pull my hair at all and is all around comfortable!
I looked at a lot of stoic pendants and this one looked the best in my opinion. I took my time and waited a month before buying just to make sure it wasn’t an impulse buy, and I can truly say I’m 100% happy with my choice. Maritime Marine sent it out very quickly and it arrived 3 days later. It came packaged very nicely and the necklace is very comfortable. I recommend this necklace and MMS if their products catch your interest.
