18ct gold Santiago scallop shell with pearl necklace ~ mini
A delicate gift with substantial significance
This exquisite little 18ct gold scallop shell / concha de vieira has been intricately worked by goldsmiths in Galicia, northern Spain, close to the ancient Way of St James. It is symbolic of the Camino de Santiago, and people who love to travel.
The 1,000-year-old Way of St. James (El Camino de Santiago - in Spanish), criss-crosses Western Europe, arriving at Santiago de Compostela in Northern Spain on the Atlantic coast. At least 200,000 people travel the Camino each year from all over the world: Some people walk, others travel by bike. Many travellers choose to do the Camino for personal, rather than any spiritual or religious reasons - taking time out from their busy/modern lives and perhaps finding inspiration along the way, whilst reflecting on their life in a supportive environment. Many carry with them a Scallop Shell shaped like this. Everyone experiences the journey in a different way.
