Carpe Diem necklace

    £60.00 Members' price *


    This Sterling silver necklace is finely engraved with the Latin quotation ‘Carpe Diem’, meaning ‘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 necklace 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.
