Latin Lovers - Silver

$68.00

Brand JJ Singh Jewelry

Growing up my father would often say "Illigimitus non carborundum" when I was upset. When I asked what it meant, he said, "look it up".  When he became ill with Alzheimers disease and could no longer communicate it suddenly became more important to me to know what he meant. The direct translation is, "Don't let the bastards get you down.". Designed in his honor after his passing, these hand stamped fine silver cuff bracelets are inscribed with Inspirational Latin phrases on the front and English translations on the reverse side. These are completely customizable.A short (but not complete) list of phrases is below. Please indicate at checkout which phrase you prefer.
