MEMENTO MORI "Remember You Will Die"/ MEMENTO VIVERE "Remember To Live" - Double Sided Thick Brass Coin Necklace
This hand-stamped heavy 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.
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.
All of our customers are part of our crew, and we take care of our own. If you have any issues with your order, we will do everything we can to fix the problem.

I am deeply in love with this product and I’m going to order more very soon, the quality is amazing and the chain is so durable
I like that the totem is not flashy but as it dangles and I feel it on my chest (speaking as someone who generally doesn't wear necklaces) it's nice to be routinely reminded to be aware and mindful. It also patinas well and is not irritating to the skin.
The shipping on this necklace was so quick! Once I got it, it blew me away! The necklace was thick and you could tell the chain was a good quality. I've had it for about a month now and the patina that's starting to show is adding to the beauty of the already beautiful necklace. The quotes on both sides are also so inspiring. I would recommend this to anyone!
