Hand-crafted from start to finish, this pair of solid 14k gold earrings features the exact same gold star that is inlaid to some of our Worthy Journey pendants. These stars are representative of the Latin phrase PER ASPERA AD ASTRA.

This motto sometimes appears as AD ASTRA PER ASPERA and though both iterations of the phrase are correct, this one is less common. Other translations include "through adversity/difficulties to the stars" and "our aspirations take us to the stars." ASTRA is the Latin root for "astronomy," ASPERA directly translates to "rough" in English, as in "rough terrain." The English word "exasperate" draws its origins from the Latin ASPERA, and indeed many trials in life prove frustrating. However, this phrase recognizes the truth that in your attempts to achieve great things, you will have to pass through some rocky times on your way to your goals. This jewelry is meant to inspire perseverance so that no matter what the world throws at you, you can relish in the challenge because the stars wait just beyond the struggle.

Pair with our gold-inlaid Worthy Journey necklace or our gold oval token North Star necklace to create a special set!

One of our most popular items, re-forged!
Hand-casted in the USA, this single-sided sterling wax seal pendant features the Latin words MEMENTO MORI with a brass-inlaid skull.

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 - just as the phrase conveys, death is inevitable. This phrase and its imagery (usually a human skull) has been around since the medieval period with roots in classical antiquity and Christianity, but it is still just as relevant today. This is not a morbid message, but instead a positive reminder to make the most of every moment you are given, to recognize the opportunity in every day we wake up and keep breathing. How do you want to live life? To its fullest, or with regrets of joy undiscovered? Life is fleeting, so treasure every gift, and guide others to that same appreciation for life.
