Our compass rose (with compass) jewelry incorporates an authentic, jeweled bearing Ritchie compass, encompassed in gold. In the closed position, you predominately see the gold compass rose with just a glimpse of the compass underneath. Pivoting the compass rose to the side reveals the compass. This design is definitely in the right direction.
A compass rose is a design element found on a compass, nautical chart, or almost any navigation system, used to display the orientation of the cardinal directions—North, East, South and West—and their intermediate points. It is also the term for the graduated markings found on a traditional magnetic compass. The "rose" term originates from the fairly ornate figures used with early compasses.
