PER ASPERA AD ASTRA "Through Hardship To The Stars" - Brass Coin Necklace
Hand-crafted from start to finish, this stamped coin features the Latin phrase PER ASPERA AD ASTRA, which means “Through hardship, to the stars.”
This motto recognizes the truth that the best things in life come from a great effort of will, and that some hardships are inevitable. No matter what the world throws at you, relish in the challenge because the stars wait beyond the struggle.
"Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength." ~Arnold Schwarzenegger

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.
This necklace was a graduation gift for my nephew. He chose this phrase for his graduation announcement which was what lead to the purchase. I hear he loved it. I had it shipped directly to him so I didn’t even get to see it.
Just like my 'Memento Mori' coin I love this one. They pair perfectly and make for great accessories. Thanks again for Molly and the team, for my beautiful me to me gifts ! Hugs and Good Luck all the way from France!
Would definitely recommend and will be buying more stuff soon
