MEMENTO MORI "Remember You Will Die"/ MEMENTO VIVERE "Remember To Live" - Double Sided Thick Coin Necklace


This hand-stamped heavy stainless steel or solid brass 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.

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 this piece

I was so excited to open my package from Maritime. The necklace is very high quality and the message(s) give me a much needed daily reminder to go for it and live life to the fullest.

Item expresses a classic sentiment, piece is struck cleanly and substantial in form, chain is also fairly robust and strong.

Wish the letter was an offset color

Item lettering Is the same color as the metal making it very hard to read. I wish the lettering was offset color like black.
