Sterling Silver Anchor Necklace & Double-Sided PER ASPERA AD ASTRA Wax Seal Pendant
Wax seal pendant features the Latin phrase PER ASPERA AD ASTRA, which means “Through hardship, to the stars.” Paired with classic Maritime anchor pendant.
This wax seal pendant features half the phrase, PER ASPERA (“through hardship”), and a path through mountains with stars in the distance on one side, representing the hardships we must face. On the reverse side it features the other half of the phrase, AD ASTRA (“to the stars”), and the north star in full view, the goal having proven worth the journey.
We chose to include this piece in our 2021 collection because one thing the world can agree on is the fact that 2020 was full of hardship and difficulties. It is our hope that 2021 will hold stars for all of us, inasmuch as stars represent hope, light, beauty, and hardships overcome and good things achieved.
