Carpe Diem

Seize the Day

Handcrafted using a British wax seal from the 1800’s.

Emblazoned on this crest pendant is a squirrel & 6 owls.

The phrase “carpe diem” comes from the Roman poet Horace; it declares his Epicurean principles of zealous enjoyment and self-reliance in the face of an uncertain future.

The motto has been blazoned on any number of coats of arms through the ages since.

Materials: Silver, Gold, Gold vermeil

Gold vermeil is a thick layer of 24k gold over a solid sterling silver base.

Size: 3/4" x 7/8" (19mm x 22mm)

PLEASE NOTE: Before you order please check sizing information - it can be hard to gauge jewelry sizes from pictures alone. On some of the seal pieces the text is so small as to be read only with a magnifying glass making the meaning a secret between you and those you choose to tell.
