Wax seal necklace with Latin be yourself motto "To be, rather than seem to be". Antique wax seal charm jewelry in silver with Cicero quote.

The words framing this piece reads in Latin:
Esse Quam Videri
(To Be, Rather Than To Seem)

Always be who you say you are. Be yourself.
It is one thing to just talk the talk, and a completely different thing to walk the walk.
This necklace symbolizes one who aspires to be true to whom God has called them to be.

The quote can be traced to Cicero, a phrase written in his essay "De Amicitia" (Friendship).
Cicero (*106BC ✝43BC)

The antique seal impression used in making this necklace dates back to the 1880's, it originates from Edinburgh, Scotland.

Note:
* size of charm is about 12x13mm
* this listing is for one charm and an 18 inch delicate sterling silver chain
* gift packaged
* card with translation/description is included

The wax seal charm necklaces are made by hand in Myrtle Beach, SC by RQP Studio.

The charm is made of fine silver .999 (which is 99.9% pure silver), and a delicate 18" sterling silver chain is included (sterling silver is 92.5% pure silver). Please note that the charm has been through a oxidization process to give it an antique, vintage patina. The antique seal has been pressed into the silver by hand, and this makes each and every wax seal charm unique. The wax seal charms are hallmarked on the reverse with the RQP logo stamp and a silver content stamp (.999) to show that the silver content is 99.9% pure silver. The wax seal necklace you will receive is similar to the ones in the pictures.

Helpful hints:
* Some of the images (above) of the wax seal necklaces have been photographed close-up. If you have a hard time imagining the size of the charms, then it can be helpful to physically draw the dimensions of the wax seal charm on a piece of paper.
*You can type in the words "mm to in" into Google's search box, that will give you a quick converter if you prefer the dimensions measured in inches.
