Large Memento Mori – Sterling Silver Pendant
A large Memento Mori sterling silver pendant featuring a skull wrapped in rosemary and the words “Memento Mori”.
Translated literally, Memento Mori means “remember you will die”. While this may seem haunting, the meaning isn’t morbid, but rather an encouragement to honour and remember those who have passed before by living our own lives to the fullest.
Rosemary represents memory and serves to heighten the message of the Memento Mori. The stamping has been given a slightly softened appearance like a coin found along the beach. As if the pendant has already had a life before finding its way to you.
Wear this symbol as a connection to family and friends who have left this earth and a call to action to make the most of the time you have been given.
Individually hand stamped and cast in sterling silver – no two medallions are alike.

I already liked the look of this piece, especially the old coin vibe, but the meaning of it really sold it to me. It appeals to me as a former art history student, and also as someone who resonnates with the message of living your life as it is happening. It is too easy to get caught up in saving good things for a rainy day, or make something a treat for when I “deserve” it, but the goal posts are always moving – when is a day rainy enough? When am I deserving? Why not indulge in joy and flourish while I am able? Any day can be a good day, if I let myself have it. I am alive right now! I deserve to have a kickass memento mori pendant actually!

From the day I saw the design to now, it’s already felt like part of me. I wear it daily and I love the subtle weight of it.
