Camino Finisterre earrings ~ amethyst + silver
A gift with real meaning
This lovely pair of amethyst and sterling-silver scallop shell earrings would make an ideal present for a lady embarking on a new adventure in their lives. They are symbolic of the Camino de Santiago walk (the 1,000-year-old pilgrimage to the shrine of St. James in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela), with the addition of Amethyst gemstones, which are said to instil calmness, balance and peace. Some 200,000 pilgrims travel the Way of St James each year from all over the world, and many carry with them a scallop shell symbol like this.

The Way of St. James criss-crosses Western Europe, arriving at Santiago through Northern Spain. It is generally regarded as a journey of the body, mind and spirit. Modern pilgrims choose to do the Camino for personal, spiritual and/or religious reasons - or simply to take time out from their busy, modern lives. For many, the walk is to find inspiration - improving their outlook on life, bringing them into closer contact with nature and expanding their cultural horizons through contact with other pilgrims. Everyone experiences the journey in a different way.
Gift our unique Camino Finisterre earrings to inspire your friends. They come gift-wrapped, like all our presents - and we can print a personal message on your behalf.
AMETHYST: The Mystical gemstone Amethyst is the stone of the mind - a spiritual and mystical gemstone that is highly prized. It is believed to instil patience, balance, calmness, and peace. Amethyst makes an ideal gift for challenges like exams and competitions that need thoughtfulness, calmness and intellect.
