Hand-crafted from start to finish, this stamped coin features a human skull with a crown of laurels and the Latin phrase MEMENTO MORI which means, "Remember you will die."
We chose to pair one of our most popular phrases with the imagery of a skull to drive home the reminder of mortality. Let this pendant remind you to live every day to its fullest potential, for we are not promised tomorrow - just as the phrase conveys, death is inevitable. This phrase and its imagery (usually a human skull) has been around since the medieval period with roots in classical antiquity and Christianity, but it is still just as relevant today. This is not a morbid message, but instead a positive reminder to make the most of every moment you are given, to recognize the opportunity in every day we wake up and keep breathing. How do you want to live life? To its fullest, or with regrets of joy undiscovered? Life is fleeting, so treasure every gift, and guide others to that same appreciation for life.
