Sterling Silver Anchor Necklace & Double-Sided MEMENTO MORI/MEMENTO VIVERE Wax Seal Pendant
Solid .925 sterling silver anchor stamped with "Maritime" vertically down the shank. Anchor measures 1.5" tall by 1" wide.
Solid sterling 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. Pendant measures 1.2" tall by 0.8" wide.
MEMENTO MORI means "Remember your mortality." 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.

I couldn't be happier with this shop! I placed an order and later learned I had a specific date I needed it by, and the service rep was exceedingly helpful, not to mention very quick to respond and answered my questions perfectly. I mentioned to the rep that the product I bought was a gift and they took it upon themselves to include a gift receipt as well, fantastic customer service all-around!! The product arrived very quickly (and even came with a few little freebies) and was beautifully packaged. The product itself appears and feels like real quality metals, and not like a cheap factory trinket. The rolo chain is also just as beautiful and unique. And then, as if the shop needed a reason to be any more awesome, they help put wells in developing countries and areas around the world. This first purchase was a gift, but I'll be giving my business to Maritime Supply Co again, without question!
I’ve been looking for an anchor pendant for some time. This is exactly what I was looking for. I wish it came with a box since this was a Christmas present. Overall very satisfied with the pendant.
High quality product. I am very satisfied how it came out, it looks great!
