This pair of vintage gold-filled charms are ready for a new life as part of a favorite everyday necklace. Two charms, one depicting a compass and the other a ship's wheel, hang in perfect balance and complement with one another. This would be a lovely gift for a traveler or individual seeking a piece of jewelry to symbolize direction and purpose. While the compass needle does move, it should not be relied upon for geographic accuracy. Paired with an 18” gold-filled chain, which fastens with a spring ring style clasp. 


What is “gold-filled?” Gold-filled jewelry is higher quality than gold-plated and lower cost than solid (alloyed) gold. Typically, gold-filled jewelry is required to have a 1/20th (or 5%) weight in gold (usually 14k,) which is affixed/bonded to all exterior portions of the jewelry item (which usually has a brass, or sometimes copper, core.) Gold-plated jewelry has no such standards and as a result usually involves a much thinner coating of gold. Gold-filled jewelry can last a lifetime without showing signs of wear and makes for excellent and durable everyday-wear pieces.
