Such Is Life

A Victorian paste seal featuring imagery of a ship at sea and text ‘Such is Life’.

Generously set in 14ct yellow gold as our Closed Back Classic Pendant with our diamond rubover EnaBailer.

Why we love it

Such is Life is one of our all time favourite seal mottos. That sense that we have only a limited control over the snags and eddies that life flows in our direction.

Depicted we see a tallship, doing its best to navigate safely through high seas, choppy, turbulent waters to reach its destination safely.

We adore the element of acceptance about this talisman. We each are but a ship navigating out on the open seas. And sometimes there are storms which we must endure; Such Is Life.

Flown away home.
