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 M?bius strip after the German mathematician August Ferdinand M?bius [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.
