A gorgeous silvertone compass has been added to a 26 inch silver tone chain that you can easily slip over our neck. The compass measures 1.5 inches all around and works as a double necklace. You can wear it both ways with a fully functional compass in the front and the words on a beautiful medallion that read "Oh, the places you'll go," on the other. This compass can also be a keychain and I can add an initial charm as well. The compass is fully functioning and has a nice weight to it -- this is not a flimsy compass at all. This is a multi-functional piece that you hope to never have to use but be glad that you had it on in the end. This would be a great gift to give to a current graduate, someone getting a new job or embarking on a voyage!
