Diamond DustHourglassNecklace

$200

An hourglass contains raw diamond dust that moves from one chamber to another. Sometimes you have to give it a little shake to move it along. Don't use this as a timekeeping device, but rather as a reminder to live your life to the fullest. To really drive this point home, we've engraved the cap with the Latin phrase TEMPUS NEMINEM MANET, meaning "time waits for no one".
