Stoic Memento Mori Logo Black and Gold Enamelled Pendant Necklace



Keep the message of Memento Mori close to you with this minimalist and striking black and gold necklace. To remember you must die is to remember you must live.

The pendant is full of symbolism and captures all aspects of Memento Mori and its themes. It has been gold plated and enamelled in black by hand.




Memento Mori is one of the key teachings in Stoic Philosophy. Literally meaning “Remember You Must Die”, this message at first appears morbid but is in fact one of the most grounding messages that Stoicism has to offer.

In our own busy lives, we can get caught up in meetings that don’t matter, doing things we don’t want to do and can take our own lives and those of those around us for granted.

Memento Mori is a reminder that there is an expiry date to all of this. We aren’t going to be here forever and neither are those that are closest to us. Remembering this makes us less likely to waste this life that is so precious and so finite. The message is sobering and allows us to constantly reassess what is important and what is unimportant.



Front of the pendant: Features our unique Memento Mori logo design. The ‘M’s on the design represent “Memento Mori” whereas the skull and hourglass are well-known symbols associated with the phrase.

Back of the pendant: Is blank revealing the smooth gold plating.



The pendant is 20mm in diameter and 2mm thick. The pendant is brass metal which has then been polished and gold plated.

After this, the pendant has then been enamelled and hand painted in black. A layer of clear resin has been applied to both sides to encase the paint for protection.

The gold plated chains are a base metal that have been gold plated. The chains are delicate but strong.

These pendants aren't suitable for wearing in the shower/for swimming as the moisture/chemicals can damage the plating and resin.

All pendants come securely and thoroughly packaged and include a black necklace box as per the image.
