Compass Rose Design, founded in 2009 by Creek and Johnny Van Houten, is a woman-owned and family-operated jewelry company. Their designs are inspired by both the past, sparking inspiration through history, and the present with their frequent travels and treasures that they collect along the way. They love working with customers who truly appreciate the craft and authenticity of their products. Compass Rose is committed to an ethical production process; they do their very own metalwork and production in their studio just north of San Francisco. They use all chains and components made locally in the United States using mostly recycled materials, with only a few exceptions.
