"Si vis pacem, para bellum" (If you want peace, prepare for war) - Dog Tag Necklace / keychain

We have 8 in stock.

This 1" x 2" stainless steel, military-style dog tag is hand stamped with the Latin adage "SI VIS PACEM, PARA BELLUM" which translates to mean "If you want peace, prepare for war"


  • The dog tag (excluding hardware) is 1” x 2” 
  • The dog tag, keyrings, and chains are all stainless steel
  • Available with a keyring, a 24” ball chain, or a 4” ball chain.
  • Only one side of this can be stamped.
  • Due to the handmade nature of these items, they will not have machine-made “perfection”.  EACH design and letter is individually hammered, one strike at a time, BY HAND.  This may lead to some variations in the spacing, depth of the designs and placement of the letters. This is not to be considered a defect, but instead a part of the unique character of the piece.
  • Your gift will be shipped ready to give - tastefully carded and tucked into a reusable fabric pouch.  
  • All items are shipped via USPS First-Class Mail unless a shipping upgrade is chosen to add faster options.   During high volume periods (around major gift-giving holidays), we ALWAYS recommend that you use PRIORITY shipping for a few dollars more.  Priority mail is processed more quickly than First Class (typically delivered in 3 days or less) and includes insurance to cover your purchase from loss or damage during transit.
  • GREEN THINKING: Whenever possible, we source our supplies from other small domestic businesses and recycle/reuse packaging materials to help reduce our environmental impact. Our precious metals are refined at a location that is environmentally and energy responsible. We recycle all acceptable waste/scrap metal to reduce our landfill footprint.   Our standard packaging is completely recyclable other than the fabric pouch, which is reusable.  
  • Please be aware that the photos shown are simply a representation of previous items I have created and may not be exactly what you receive, as each item is uniquely created just for you at the time you order.
