Sterling Silver Anchor Necklace & Double-Sided MEMENTO MORI/MEMENTO VIVERE Wax Seal Pendant


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. Paired with classic Maritime anchor pendant.

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.

Anchor is solid .925 sterling silver with "Maritime" stamped vertically down the shank. Anchor pedant measures 1" wide by 1.5" tall. 

Wax seal pendant is solid .925 sterling silver and measures 1.2" tall by 0.5" wide and is nickel-free.

Hand-casted in the U.S.A. 

Strung on 26'' stainless rolo chain, 2.5mm thick.

Live today because for dust you shall return

I am beyond ecstatic with my anchor and wax seal necklace. The quality is great and the chain is strong, with a 1 and 3 year old tugging and playing with my necklace as I carry them. It serves as a daily reminder to live to the fullest because each day is a gift. The customer service from MSC is top notch and my product arrived in 3 days. 5 stars!
