Carpe Noctem Necklace

10 items left

"Carpe noctem" -- Latin for "sieze the night." For astronomers, success depends on making the most of the night. The rest of us in academia, through choice or procrastination, also endeavor to squeeze every last ounce of productivity from the midnight hours. Sooo...since we were up late anyway, we had this phrase hand-stamped on a 1" brushed nickel pendant. (Note: for hand-stamped items, the exact placement and look of the lettering may vary slightly.) The piece is domed, with a soft matte finish, and hangs on your choice of an adjustable black cotton cord or a steel snake chain.

Perfect for:

  • Astronomers
  • Midnight computer programmers
  • Procrastinators
  • People who work late and sleep late by choice (aka "academics"...it's a lifestyle)

A Great Gift!

I bought this as a gift for my sister. She loves it! When the chain I requested for the necklace was out of stock, they reached out to me about it and gave me alternatives which was super nice! Shipped quickly too.

Carpe Noctem necklace

I bought this necklace to give my wife for Valentine's Day. Great looking pendant and chain. I'm so excited to give this to her.

The necklace I purchased came very quickly, and was better than I had hoped for. I will definitely buy again from Boutique Academia; besides the unique style, I believe it to be great quality.
