This sterling silver bracelet is finely engraved with the Latin quotation ‘Carpe Diem’, which translates to ‘Seize the day’.
The elliptical shape of the bracelet is known as a Möbius strip, after the German mathematician August Ferdinand Möbius [1790-1868]. It represents the seeming paradox of a plane without end, or one of infinite length. As such it became accepted as a symbol for infinity, an appropriate and symbolic form for this memorable inscription.
The bracelet forms part of a range of poesy jewellery available in the Pompeii range (poesy jewellery is jewellery decoratively inscribed with short poems or sentiments). As such it is ideal as a gift.
