Amor fati (Latin: “a love of fate”) is a mindset that you take on for making the best out of anything that happens: treating each and every moment—no matter how challenging—as something to be embraced, not avoided. The flame on the front of the medallion is inspired by Marcus Aurelius’s timeless wisdom: “a blazing fire makes flame and brightness out of everything that is thrown into it.” The back features an excerpt from the great philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche’s formula for greatness: “Not merely bear what is necessary, still less conceal it... but love it.”

Each coin is shipped in a custom-designed box with an accompanying information card, explaining the practice to anyone receiving the coin. Each coin has a unique finish and character.

Compared to these things, everything else is cheap, if not worthless. Every situation, every moment is an opportunity to exemplify these forms of human excellence. There is no challenge, no problem so big that it does not call for courage, moderation, justice or wisdom.

To keep these virtues in mind, we are extremely excited to introduce the Four Virtues Pendant. This design, custom to Daily Stoic, was hand-sketched by an artist in Brooklyn, NY, Lewis Williams. The mixed-metal pendants are handmade by the same artist who drew the design, using the ancient processes of carving into the wax and casting into brass and sterling silver and then sawing, engraving, hammering & soldering the metals with precision and care. Each pendant comes with a 24" sterling silver chain and is handcrafted using traditional techniques and only the finest materials.

  • -Solid Sterling Silver Pendant (2 cm wide, 3.5 cm tall)
  • -Brass Center Emblem (1.5 cm wide, 2 cm tall)
  • -24" Sterling Silver Chain

Like the Cardinal directions, the four main points on the compass—north, south, east, west—the four virtues are a kind of compass. A guide to what to do, who to be, how to behave, how to respond in every situation—with:

Courage, bravery, fortitude, honor, sacrifice...

Temperance, self-control, moderation, composure, balance...

Justice, fairness, service, fellowship, goodness, kindness...

Wisdom, knowledge, education, truth, self-reflection, serenity...

This creation was made to last for generations. Pass down these Stoic virtues for years to come.

Each ring is shipped in a velvet ring box, with an outer embossed box showing the four essential symbols. It’s a powerful gift to anyone who needs the message.

NOTE: The Four Virtues rings are available in three sizes (8, 10, 12) able to be resized two sizes in either direction (a 10 becomes an 8 or 12). It is important to know your ring size before ordering. Please go to a jeweler (many offer free sizings) ahead of time to order correct size.
