Memento Mori Silver Necklace or Charm - Memento Vivere Reminder Jewelry


Keep your reminder 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.

A reminder to live a good life.

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!

I hope each day is filled with new adventure!

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.

Amazing charm, not so good chain.

It's an awesome charm, I wear it all the time but the chain is not great, it's staining my neck as it's meant to be black but the black on the chain is rubbing off.

Shire Post Mint coins are struck one at a time in West Fork, Arkansas, USA using solid metals, hand-engraved designs, antique machinery and traditional coining techniques. For antiqued coins, the coloring/patina process is done by hand, and it is both an art and a science so coins will vary slightly. Our unique packaging includes a description of each coin and translations if applicable.

We collaborate with many artists to create our coins. Learn more about our artists.
