DUM SPIRO SPERO "While I Breathe, I Hope" - Brass Coin Necklace


Part of our new Captain’s Script coin collection.

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.

Please note: All our brass pendants are raw brass, meaning they are not electroplated and will develop a beautiful patina over time. We include a jewelry cloth with every order to help keep your pendant's original shine if you choose to do so.

Love at first sight

I've been eying this necklace for awhile because the phrase has come to mean a lot to me lately in these tumultuous times. So glad I finally made the purchase. Classy, meaningful and affordable.

Dum spiro spero necklace

The necklace is great, but the service from the company is even better. I was really pleasantly surprised when I opened the package and found more than what I thought I was receiving. Definitely worth it in my opinion

Excellent Necklace

I haven't taken it off since I received it a few days ago! The brass is beautiful and is getting even more attractive looking each day. Nice reminder to keep on keeping on!
