Carpe Diem (Seize the Day) Poesy Secret Message Locket Necklace

Carpe Diem (Seize the Day) Poesy Secret Message Locket Necklace


This empowering hidden message necklace is not for the timid. It reminds the wearer to believe in themselves and go after their dreams by taking advantage of every single day. 

This unique secret message locket is inspired by the popular poesy ring inscriptions of poesy or "poetry" rings that were exchanged as wedding bands or tokens of friendship and affection from the 5th through the 15th centuries.

Hand-wrought from sterling silver, this vintage style circular message locket is set with a filigree design surrounding a beautiful purple amethyst set in a simple bezel setting.  An amethyst promotes both peace and courage, two qualities needed to go steadfastly after your dreams.

Upon opening the locket, you reveal the hidden message that reads “carpe diem,” the classic Latin phrase attributed to Roman poet Horace meaning "seize the day."  

This amethyst secret message locket comes with an oxidized finish to show detail and to give it a vintage look and suspends from a decorative oxidized 18-inch sterling silver chain.

Each locket comes with a small card enclosed in its jewel box that provides the translation of the hidden poesy message.

It would make a great gift for a graduate, or for anyone who needs a little reminder that you should live every day to its fullest.
