Working Compass necklaces and pendants in gold and silver

Handmade Life Compass Pendants in Gold and Silver

Handmade Compass Pendants Designed for Life

I have developed a beautiful and unique style of compass pendants. But it's not just about their beauty. These are quality, working compasses that are different because they really work - and they last, too. Each one is set within an individually handmade pendant and is designed for life. Compasses you can wear everyday, whether it's in the shower, up a mountain or on an evening out in your best party clothes.

The compass is often used in jewellery design as a way of symbolising direction in life. And, like me, many people want to wear a compass themselves or to choose one as a gift. Sometimes it's to celebrate a birthday, a graduation or an achievement. Other times it's been more about a big decision or in connection with a change of direction.

Gemstone Compass Pendants

Life Compass pendants that appear to be a necklace featuring a gemstone but, in fact, have a button compass set into the back which is worn facing the body. You could say this a more of a secret working compass necklace with this style.

Engraved Compass Pendants

An engraving is another way to personalise your compass pendant. You can have yours engraved with words or a design and the engraving can be on the back or sometimes around the sides of the compass. Lots of options!

How big is the Compass to wear?

This is compass jewellery with a working compass inside that's big enough to use and small enough to wear with comfort. You can tell from the name "button compass pendants" that the compass itself is going to be small and button sized, and here are a few pictures to show you what I mean.

Gold Compass Pendants and Necklaces Designed for Life

The working button compasses inside these creations is like no other out there so it makes sense to set them in gold as well as silver. When I say compasses designed for life, I mean it because these are gold compass pendants you can wear all the time and it doesn't matter if you get them wet. (What? So I can swim in it, too? YES!! Check out the working compass inside)

Here are some handmade gold compass pendants and necklaces I've made for those who prefer gold.

Options for your Life Compass Necklace

What chain should I put my compass pendant on?

You can choose either an 18inch (46cm) or 27inch (68cm) chain for your compass in one of 2 styles - curb or luxury box. These lengths work well for women and men respectively, with the longer length also looking great on women who like their compass to hang a little lower on the neck (and for it to be even easier to fiddle with!). If you have another length for your chain in mind then just let me know and I'll make it up for you.

Can I have a compass pendant custom made just for me?

Each of my Life Compasses is individually handmade and unique.  If you like the idea of having one made just for you to your own design (or one we work on together…!) then here's what's involved with the custom made process step by step.

What about an engraved compass?

Having a personal engraving on your compass is another way to personalise it. Read about engraving your compass and, as you'll see, there's more than one way to do this! There are some ideas for what to have engraved there, too.

Other stuff you really need to know about these Compass Necklaces

I have a thing for compasses and could go on and on, but will keep it short! Here are some links where you can learn more about the compasses if you want to.

The Button Compass Inside

It's really important to me that there's a quality compass inside your pendant, a decent one that you can put on and leave on without having to worry about spoiling it. You can read about the button compass inside to see what I mean.

Really, read about the compass inside. You won't find another one out there like it :)

I use the same button compass for each of my compass creations so the size of that part doesn't change. It's the outer pendant that can differ in size and design, but my aim is to keep to a comfortable size to wear.
