Memento Mori Silver Necklace or Charm - Memento Vivere Reminder Jewelry
There is a long history of Memento Mori reminders, including coins. We have added our own spin on the concept and included a new reverse side, “Memento Vivere” which translates to “remember that you have to live.” We believe there is a beautiful balance between accepting mortality and embracing life.
Memento mori (Latin: "Remember that you have to die.") is the medieval Latin Christian theory and practice of reflection on mortality. Especially as a means of considering the vanity of earthly life and the transient nature of all earthly goods and pursuits.
Memento vivere (Latin: "Remember you have to live.") Know that your time is short in the grand scheme of things. So have fun while you are here.

The Memeto Mori coin is a little small for EDC, I always afraid I would lose it. But now with the sliver coin pendant on my neck every day, giving me a sense of urgency: I need to do something that really matter! Now! Who knows? Maybe I am going to die tomorrow!
Everything about the experience was perfect and the craftsmanship of the coin/necklace is amazing. This is the perfect reminder that life is short make the most of it and don’t forget to enjoy it.
Nice weight, solid silver, good price and looks nice. Reminds me to live daily.
Horrible shipping, Im still waiting....
I just sent you an email with updated tracking info :)
After reading multiple reviews, I was confident that the Memento Mori coin necklace would make a good gift for a loved one who's recently developed an interest in Stoic philosophy and has an eye for quality goods. The item I received vastly exceeded my already high expectations.
The craftsmanship of the pendant itself is superb on every level, with a satisfying heft and an astonishing amount of fine detail. There are a lot of memento mori coins out there, but most of them are rather dull in terms of design--this one has a kind of vibrancy and playfulness to it that impressed me on first sight and has continued to do so with every look since.
The chain to which the pendant is tethered is also exceptionally well-made and looks like it will hold up for a good long time.
Furthermore, my order was shipped out in a prompt and timely fashion even though it was placed only a couple of weeks before Christmas. I appreciated the personalized touches on the packaging envelope, as well as the information included about the history of the company and their proprietary minting process.
All in all, my experience with Shire Post Mint has been overwhelmingly positive, and I would happily order from them again in the future. Keep up the great work, guys!
