I was looking for an anniversary band to wear with my wedding ring which is a rough cut diamond in platinum. The rough blue diamonds go perfectly with my wedding ring stone without being too matchy-matchy. The silver goes perfectly with the platinum as well. Beautiful ring. Very well made. Arrived quickly once it shipped. Nice presentation when opening. Very pleased with my ring and my experience with Carpe Diem.

Words are not big enough and the ring looked more substancial in the pictures. Looks like a very thin piece of metal when on. Very disappointing.

Thanks for your feedback. The ring that was shipped to you, was exactly as photographed and the same as the measurements in the description. If you would like to exchange this piece, please let me know through Etsy email, thanks. Greg | Carpe Diem | Seize the Day

About

Our Story

carpe diem is a Latin aphorism, usually translated "seize the day", taken from the Roman poet Horace's Odes (23 BC).

Tu ne quaesieris, scire nefas, quem mihi, quem tibi
finem di dederint, Leuconoe, nec Babylonios
 temptaris numeros. ut melius, quidquid erit, pati.
seu pluris hiemes seu tribuit Iuppiter ultimam,
quae nunc oppositis debilitat pumicibus mare
 Tyrrhenum. Sapias, vina liques et spatio brevi
spem longam reseces.
dum loquimur, fugerit invida
aetas:
carpe diem, quam minimum credula postero.

Don't ask (it's forbidden to know) what end
the gods have given me or you, Leuconoe.
Don't play with Babylonian numerology either.
How much better it is to endure whatever will be!
Whether Jupiter has allotted you many more winters
or this one, which even now wears out the Tyrrhenian
sea on the opposing rocks, is the final one be wise,
be truthful, strain the wine,
and scale back your long hopes to a short period.
While we speak, envious time will have {already} fled:
seize the day, trusting as little as possible in the next day.

Please note there are different charges depending on the amount of characters you choose and a limit of characters on each piece of jewelry. A separate invoice may be sent for the engraved custom stamp after your purchase is complete. I only offer the English alphabet in LARGE CAPS, numbers, and Roman numerals.

Please specify if you would like your custom engraving on the inside or outside of your piece and please specify if you would like the current displayed lettering or blank with your own custom engraving.

If this is not specified, the custom engraving will be stamped as shown in the listing, or I will use my design discretion for the location of the custom engraving.

1-10 characters $15
11-20 characters $25
21-30 characters $35

I only offer one font and size an example is in the link below:

Metal Information and Product Information

I work with 925 sterling silver, 14k gold, brass, bronze, and silver mixed with metal alloy.

All Carpe Diem jewelry pieces are individually handmade, so no two pieces are exactly the same. Although very very similar some pieces are hand finished so there may be some differences.

For some finishes I use an oxidization process to darken a piece. Some pieces are designed to fade and wear with time. On the brass, bronze and silver mixed with metal alloy you may notice some black marks as the oxidization wears off but this shouldn't last forever.

Please understand that a very small percentage of people may have an allergic reaction to different metals.

If you notice this you can always exchange or upgrade to a different metal.
