This is a compass design that we have made to cut apart into 2 necklaces for couples or friendship. It is made from a silver US coin. We burnish and hammer the details of the top of the coin away and leave just wavy metal. Then we engrave a compass with a world map in the middle, with roman numerals on the sides. Then we will cut the compass into an interlocking design for two people.
For this design we use silver quarters, half dollars or whole dollars minted before 1965. So they are made of real silver. You will be able to see the details of the coin on the back of the necklace.
We are a small team of six who work very hard to make sure you have the perfect gift! We really do cut our coins totally by hand. Check out the "about us" section and watch our video! If you have any questions or would like something custom then please let us know.
