A gorgeous silver tone compass has been added to a 24 inch silver tone chain. The compass measures 1 inches all around and opens with a notch in the lid. I added to this compass a detailed charm of a heart and a cameo that is handmade and reads "Follow your heart." This would make an amazing graduation gift. The compass is fully functioning and has a nice weight to it -- this is not a flimsy compass at all. This is a multi-functional piece that you hope to never have to use but be glad that you had it on in the end.
