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 for North and East. The compass points in four directions; North, South, East, and West, hearkening back to sailors and ships traversing the stormy seas on their way home from a long journey. The compass holds meaning for a traveler, being a symbol for guidance, 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.
Necklace comes packaged with the above quote in a muslin drawstring bag.
