The compass is a symbol that resonates with the spirit of adventure, wanderlust, and finding your “True North”. Each one of these pendants is cut out of solid sterling silver by hand, then hammer formed and textured with tool markings left in, and stamped with the symbol of the compass. The irregular oval shapes and rustic rough-hewn edges of each one are different and unique, reminiscent of old world silversmith pieces.
This necklace is made to order and each one is unique, the one in the photos is sold and yours will be created just for you with optional custom stamping on the backside.
-Hand formed solid sterling silver pendant with hammer texture, tool markings and compass stamping.
-Irregular rustic oval shape which will vary slightly with each pendant.
-Pendant measurements will vary slightly with each one but are approximately 14-15mm (just over 1/2″) length (not including the top loop which adds about 5mm or 1/4″), 12-13mm (1/2″) width, and 1mm thickness.
-Stamped on backside with .925 sterling stamp.
-You may choose to personalize this piece with a custom stamping on the backside (see below for guidelines). Custom stamping is optional, simply leave the personalization box blank if you don’t want any stamping on the back.
-Chain is a solid sterling silver cable chain with spring ring clasp. Choose from sterling silver 1.1mm oval link cable chain or sterling silver 1mm diamond cut cable chain.

-Custom stamping on the backside of this pendant is optional. You may choose not to request it (simply leave the personalization box blank) and the backside of pendant will only have the .925 sterling stamp.
-Use the personalization box to enter the stamping you would like, please check spelling carefully as I will stamp exactly what you have typed onto the pendant.
-You may use the font style drop menu to request the font be all uppercase, all lowercase, or exactly as you have typed it in the box. If none are specified, default is all uppercase.
-Please keep your custom stamping at or under 3 characters to fit on this pendant. If you need slightly over, please message me so I can see if it will work.
-Stamping can include letters, numbers, and common punctuation characters. If you’re not sure I have your desired character available, please feel free to check with me before ordering.

NECKLACE LENGTH GUIDELINES
If you already know your desired necklace length, simply select it from the drop down menu. Sizes are listed by the inch. If you would like an in between size (example 18 1/2″) please select the closest size from the menu and then leave me a note at checkout requesting the size. I will accommodate the size request as closely as possible.
If you don’t know what length you need, here’s how to measure to get the proper size. Take a flexible tape measure and drape it around your neck at the length you want the necklace to lay. The measurement where the two ends meet is your necklace length.
If you don’t have a tape measure handy, you can use a string and a flat ruler. Simply drape the string around your neck in the same way as you would with a tape measure. Pinch the string on each end where the two ends meet, and then place that section of string against a flat ruler to get your measurement.
You can also measure the length of a necklace you own that fits how you like in order to get your measurement, but if you choose this method please try to measure a necklace that is of a similar style to this one or at least is designed to lay the same way. Different necklace styles can fit very differently even if they are the same length measured end to end.
That’s it! Then choose your necklace measurement from the drop down menu and I will create your necklace to your desired length.
