DUM SPIRO SPERO "While I Breathe, I Hope" - Brass Coin Necklace
Hand-crafted from start to finish, this stamped coin features the Latin phrase DUM SPIRO SPERO, which means “While I breathe, I hope.”
DUM SPIRO SPERO is a constant reminder that while we still live, nothing is futile and that hope springs eternal. Even in our darkest moments, we can remember that our state of life is in itself an act of defiance against the forces that would undo us. Fight on for as long as you draw breath, and never surrender to defeat.
This phrase is also the state motto of South Carolina, where our studio resides.
- Coin pendant is 1" in diameter.
Purchase this coin as a keychain instead of a necklace here.
If you are unsure about which chain length to order, please read our suggestions on the FAQ page.
Please note: All our brass pendants are raw brass, meaning they are not electroplated and will develop a beautiful patina over time. We recommend polishing it with a soft cloth to help keep your pendant's original shine if you prefer the bright metal look.
Great product, exactly what I expected. Have had this tattooed on my wrist for years and this now compliments the tattoo. Arrived promptly and contributing to a brilliant cause too.
I like the look and quality of the necklace.
