Double Sided Wax Seal Necklace - PER ASPERA AD ASTRA "Through Hardship To The Stars"


Included in our new 2021 Motivation collection.

PER ASPERA AD ASTRA means “Through hardship, to the stars.” This 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.

"Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength." -Arnold Schwarzenegger

My BFF and I both purchased it. We’ve been friends for 30 years, so the meaning, and the symbolism perfectly describes our decades long relationship. There really are no words. But it’s such a beautiful piece of jewelry and we are very happy with our purchase.

Love it

It’s so much better in person. It’s freakin’ awesome and it means so much to me. I’m not one for wearing necklaces or jewelry in general but this is one I don’t ever want to take off.
