AMOR VINCIT OMNIA "Love Conquers All" - Infinity Knot Necklace
Hand-crafted from start to finish, this stamped coin features the Latin phrase AMOR VINCIT OMNIA, which means "Love conquers all," framing a piece of nautical rope forming an infinity sign.
The infinity sign speaks to the hope that once found, love will be everlasting.
The phrase AMOR VINCIT OMNIA was perhaps made most famous by the Italian Baroque artist Caravaggio and his painting of the same title. The painting depicts a brazen Cupid, the Roman god of love, knocking over many symbols of human endeavors and civilization, offering the commentary that art, war, music, and exploration pale in comparison to the pursuit (or possession) of love.
However, the Roman poet Virgil is credited with first coining the phrase, and he said it best: “Omnia vincit amor: et nos cedamus amori” (“Love conquers all; let us, too, yield to love!”)
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.
