Sterling Silver Anchor Necklace & Double-Sided MEMENTO MORI/MEMENTO VIVERE Wax Seal Pendant
One of our double sided wax seal pendants paired with a classic sterling silver Maritime anchor. 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 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. We chose to pair the wax seal with an anchor to provide a reminder that you have things in your life that prevent you from going adrift in the sea of life and help keep you grounded.

Ive never worn necklaces but these phrases mean alot to me so i took and chance. The quality is great and the pendants are perfect size. Plus if the chain just happens to snap (which would take alot to happen) a replacement chain can be bought for a great price. Definitely will recommend to everyone i know
The shopping experience was amazing. The pendants are beautiful and the customer service excellent. I am very pleased with the purchase and what this company stands for.
The necklace and Charms are awesome!
