Memento Mori Copper Necklace - Memento Vivere Reminder Jewelry
Keep your memento mori with you
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.

Looks just like the picture! An excellent saying couplet suitable for christian, stoic, and buddhist practitioners, or someone who just enjoys the skull coin design! The copper finish is great choice, and the chain it comes with is nice.
The most surprising thing for me (as a new customer) was how cool the packaging was! A print design stamped with a stamp like the necklace. I saved the packaging of the jewelry because it was that awesome :). I will keep this shop on my watchlist for future purchases. Thank you so much!!!
Looks great, feels great, very pleased with my order.
I just love it ! Fast delivery. Would definitely buy again !!
I've been wearing it 99% of the time i've had it! I don't intend to stop wearing it either! Thanks guys!
The coin is beautifully made and the weight is perfect for the necklace. Really an outstanding piece of jewelry.
