MEMENTO MORI "Remember You Will Die"/ MEMENTO VIVERE "Remember To Live" - Double Sided Stainless Steel Coin Necklace
This hand-stamped stainless steel coin features the Latin phrase MEMENTO MORI on one side and MEMENTO VIVERE on the other side.
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. 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 two phrases 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.

Been wanting the stainless steel coin. Was so happy when I got notified it was in stock. Great work and purchase
Beautiful piece. The chain is decently heavy which I actually like. The company went above and beyond with the order with fulfilling a special request and including the necklace in a little bag and including free stickers. Awesome company and product. 10/10 would buy from here again
I have never been so happy with a jewelry purchase via the internet before! I received my order in 3 days, which was amazing! The chain is very strong and thick, the engraved coin is also of thick quality--not cheap and flimsy! After I received the first 2 necklaces I had ordered on a whim, I ordered 2 more as gifts. One was for my teenage son. I thought he would think his mom was lame, but he hasn't taken it off since I gave it to him last week, except to shower. Anyone with a teenager knows, that's a great mom win! ("Run on a little bit longer") Customer service has been amazing, not because I needed them for any issues, but because I reached out letting them know one of my gift orders was for a Marine friend of mine who had lost a war-time friend that very day. They responded with a heartfelt message and with the promise to share similar anonymous stories for me to share with my friend for comfort. What a great company! Also love the little boat, what a perfect accent to an amazing order!
