Shop Newport History
The 16 point compass charm is hand cast here in Newport, Rhode Island, from a vintage wax seal in brass and then sealed with a patina process. Each charm's colors vary as the patina process produces unique hues and tones. You can choose to hang this piece from either 16 inch, 18 inch, or 22 inch chain.
