Black Star Guiding Star Compass
Silver compass pendant with a black star sapphire in a little galaxy of stars. Handmade in silver and gold with a waterproof working compass inside.
A Multitude of Stars
Voyagers, explorers and mariners have navigated the world plotting their course based on a multitude of stars guiding their way for millennia.
This compass creation features a black star sapphire with a 6-ray star which appears to shimmer beneath its surface when moved in the light. It’s also framed in a gold star and several little stars in the form of gold droplets orbit around the surface. So, on a much smaller scale, there’s a mini multitude of stars on this compass pendant to give the wearer a bit of help in the right direction.
Not only do sapphires come in a variety of colours, they also come with 6-ray stars. These stars are called asterisms and are caused by sapphire’s internal crystal structure. Beautiful.
Sapphire is the September birthstone and also the stone associated with the 5th, 23rd and 45th wedding anniversaries. They are also simply irresistible even if you don’t have a birthday in that month!
Working Compass Inside
Inside the pendant is a working compass that really does work, and it’s waterproof, too. I use the Francis Barker survival compass as it’s one of the best working compasses out there. However, I’ve made it even better with custom enhancements so it won’t leak and you don’t need to take it off in the shower. For everything you need to know about this please check out the page telling you all about the compass inside.
Shown here on a Luxury Box Chain, this silver and 18k pendant is 22mm diameter. My aim is to keep my compass jewellery to a comfortable size to wear.
Chains are optional and available in different styles and lengths.
