The symbolic image of a compass has been around for a very long time. Sailors got tattoos with the compass rose for luck in finding their way home. It's also a symbol used to represent the idea of staying focused and moving in the right direction. A perfect talisman for someone starting out on a new journey in life.
The pendant is made of fine silver (.999) and is a bit under 1" in diameter (24mm). It has a brushed matte finish and comes on a 16" sterling rollo chain. If you'd prefer 18" or the 22" stainless steel flat cable chain (which is shown in the last photo and is good for men or if you like a longer chain) just leave me a note in the message to seller box with which one you'd like.
Please note that each piece is made by hand and may vary slightly from the photo. This comes in a recycled gift box tied with a raffia ribbon, ready for giving.
I have a number of compass designs, you can see them all here:
