True North Necklace
"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams."
-Henry David Thoreau
This gorgeous compass is the obverse of a 20-escudos Portuguese coin. The nautical compass has markings at North and East.
North is a symbol for infinite possibilities, security, home and truth. East represents the future and new beginnings. As the sun rises in the east every day this marker also represents optimism and hope.
The compass holds meaning for a traveler, being a symbol for guidance and the ability to point you in the right direction.
Genuine Portuguese coin, sterling silver hand-made setting, antiqued silver-plated chain 24" long, lobster claw clasp. The pendant is approx. 1" across. Lead-free, nickel-free.
