Victorian, Edwardian or vintage, there is nothing quite like the characterful beauty of compasses, especially antique compasses. Whether encased in glittering Goldstone or set into a charming ship's wheel, you cannot deny that an ornate antique compass offers a sweet unusual addition to a necklace stack. Additionally, compasses represent a sense of direction and stability.
This circa 1890 example in 15ct is especially alluring with its original bale top and bezel set peridot stones. I am most taken with even the little details of the construction, and the fabulous original condition.
