Spiritual and religious jewellery
There a two threads that entwine our website: Spirit and Soul. Soul is related to the individual person (some call it the “spiritual self”), whereas Spirit is universal. For example, it’s quite possible to be spiritual but not religious – implying that you do not need an organisation like a Church, for example, to live your life of faith.
Well, don’t worry 😉 we cater for both on our website! And just about ALL the gifts in our shop meet the Spirit/Soul criteria.
Every jewellery item or gift has a warmth of character and a refreshing uniqueness that, with the added symbolism that each piece possesses, expresses a depth of soul and vitality of spirit that it not so apparent on other jewellery websites.
The designs and symbols of our gifts (in particular, the spiritual and religious jewellery) communicate both to the wearer and the observer: Each piece of spiritual or religious jewellery in our shop actually MEANS something (and you can read about that meaning on the product page itself, or in articles on this website). There is an energy of creativity in all our spiritual jewellery, with a symbolism and a real, genuine identity that actually has a tangible significance.
Yet much of our religious jewellery (especially the Christian jewellery) is still traditional in its design, with a devotion to the classical themes of the particular belief or faith, and with respect for the traditions of religious jewellery of the past . . but in a more modern design and style. For centuries, across different cultures around the world, jewellery has had a spiritual and mystical connotation defined by symbols. Nowhere is this more apparent than in our spiritual jewellery, especially our Christian faith jewellery. There is a long history of jewellery featuring talismans or charms to ensure protection from evil, safekeeping, faith and grace . . and often good health, wealth and good fortune too. Our spiritual jewellery is in line with that tradition.
Many of our religious jewellery pieces such as pendants, necklaces, bracelets, etc, feature symbols based on notable religious symbols. A great deal of our Christian / Catholic jewellery is from Spain and is hand-crafted by artisans and goldsmiths in small workshops across the country: Córdoba, Almería, Malaga, Murcia, Valencia, Galicia and Asturias. Our Camino de Santiago jewellery in particular is significant: Concha de Vieira Scallop shell necklaces and bracelets, Cruz de Santiago / St James cross pendants, Cruces de Caravaca, Tau crosses, and so on. Of course, we also stock St Christophers, Guardian Angels, Hamsas (hand of Fatima), and simple Christian crosses.
Add the more Oriental and Spiritual symbols of Shambhala, Yin Yang, and the Astrological Star Sign symbols of the Zodiac, and you have a broad spectrum of religious, Christian, faith and spiritual jewellery from which to choose in our online shop.
Truly meaningful spiritual jewellery pieces featuring symbols based on notable ethereal, theological and religious beliefs.
