This Victorian engraved fancy compass pendant is a unique piece, which is sure to be adored by any avid collector of antique jewels!
Complete with an 18" belcher chain, at the end of this necklace sits a compass pendant with an almost feline looking shape- which is no surprise given their adventurous streak! Although the compass can't be relied upon for pointing to north, we still think this is a super sweet piece!

VERY GOOD. This fancy compass pendant and chain duo are in very good condition! The Belcher chain is sturdy and secure, with all of the links neatly attached. The engraved markings on the compass have remained beautiful over the years, but the compass face has a few scratches to note. The hallmarks allow us to accurately date the piece all the way back to 1885, which is incredible!
