Symbolic jewelry is the perfect gift for men. This rustic compass necklace is thick, hand carved and sterling silver. It hangs about 1" from the gorgeous, sterling silver chain shown in your choice of lengths. The compass points in four directions; North, South, East and West, bringing back to sailors and ships traversing the stormy seas on their way home from a long journey; when the north star is not visible, it gives a sense of direction. The compass holds special meaning being a symbol for guidance, the ability to point you in the right direction. The turquoise is associated with meanings of refreshing, calming, sophisticated, energy, wisdom, serenity, wholeness, creativity, emotional balance, good luck, spiritual grounding, friendship, love, joy, tranquility, patience, intuition, and loyalty.
