Double Sided Wax Seal Leather Necklace - MEMENTO MORI / MEMENTO VIVERE


Features the Latin words MEMENTO MORI with a skull on one side, and MEMENTO VIVERE with an old sailor’s face on the other.

Sterling pendant on a thick, adjustable leather cord necklace. 

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.

Pendant measures 1.2" tall by 0.8" wide.

This is my second purchase Maritime Supply and it won't be last. The quality, customer service and philanthropic philosophy of the company are really a cut above the rest. Plus the designs are just simply very cool. Highly, highly recommend their products. Thank you providing a product above and beyond what you promise and thank you for your charity work.
