Still wandering... a wonderful cluster of charms, with a compass rose wax seal charm, a little gypsy caravan locket charm that opens to reveal a gypsy gazing over her crystal ball and two little gemstone beads, a tiny crystal ball gemstone bead and a little turquoise bead... all threaded onto a 20" oxidized sterling silver chain with a spring ring clasp.

The north star wax seal charm is hand cast from a vintage compass desk wax seal into bronze and then patinated to give it aqua speckles contrasting the darkened bronze. It measures almost 1/2”
The compass rose is an ornate 16 pointed star, symbolic of the North Star, or Polaris, which historically has been used as an aid to navigation, since it seemingly never moves... it’s the star that the earth's axis points toward in the Northern sky.

The little vintage sterling silver gypsy caravan charm opens to reveal a gypsy gazing over her tiny silver crystal ball. It measures just over 1/2” in width.

The little gemstone beads, a clear crystal and a turquoise magnesite, measure 4mm or just over 1/8".

Wear all the charms clustered together or slip a charm or two off the chain to create a different look.

Frequently asked questions about suegrayjewelry

Unsure of the size of a wax seal charm?
I've included measurements in both inches and millimeters for every charm, as well as included a photo with the charm next to an old US dime, which is the same size as todays dimes.

Many of these wonderful wax seal charms are very small and I'm often asked if I can make them bigger.

I cannot make the wax seal charms larger - the charms can only be the size of the wax seal from which they are stamped in the silver.
Sorry, but I don't engrave my wax seal charms - I don't have the equipment or the experience to do so.

It's a lovely idea so perhaps your local jeweler can do the engraving for you.

If your ring size is not included in the drop down box of ring sizes I can still make a custom size ring for you.
Simply select "other" from the drop down box and add a note, with your ring size, to your order.
Custom rings are not returnable.
The wax seal charms have been oxidized, a process which antiques/ blackens the low areas on the charm, giving it contrast instead of being completely shiny.

If the high areas begin to tarnish and you’d like them shiny again, gently rub a silver polishing cloth over the area to be shined.



This polishing pad works great:
